Sébastien Avot, currently director in the distribution and trading Emea team for Deutsche Bank’s global transaction banking (GTB) division will move from London to Dubai on July 1 to take up the position of head of distribution and trading for Middle East and Africa, GTR understands.

In Dubai he will fill an open position, as his predecessor moves to the bank’s investment banking division. He will continue to report to Boris Jaquet, regional head Emea for distribution and trading.

Avot has been in his current role since he joined the bank in October 2010, focusing on distributing syndicated unsecured and structured loans for global borrowers into the Emea region, in both primary and secondary markets.

His structured trade finance experience also includes BNP Paribas, where he was responsible for selling loans in France, Russia, the CIS and Turkey, as well as some secondary sales, until 2010.
