The bank’s supervisory board agreed the request after it had
been proposed at the chairman’s committee on 11 September this year, Deutsche
Bank said in a statement.
The contracts of Fitschen and Anshu Jain, co-CEOs of
Deutsche Bank, will now both continue through to March 31 2017. Both men had asked
for the contract renewal.
“Since becoming co-CEOs, Jürgen and Anshu have made numerous
important decisions that are positioning Deutsche Bank in the right direction.
The Supervisory Board has therefore decided to support their request. We know
our company is in good hands with them,” Paul Achleitner, chairman of the supervisory
board of Deutsche Bank, said in a statement.
