Deutsche Bank has made Patrick O'Rourke chief country officer
in New Zealand,
immediately succeeding Brett Shepherd who is taking on the role as chief
executive of Deutsche Craigs Limited.

Shepherds move expands the bank’s partnership with the New Zealand
investment firm, Craigs Investment Partners, so it now includes advisory in
addition to the existing equity capital markets and debt capital markets
business.

O’Rourke was previously head of markets for New Zealand as well as head of illiquid credit Australia and New Zealand - a role he will
retain. In his capacity as CCO he will report to the region’s executive
chairman JT Macfarlane and, for illiquid credit, to Kevin Kosovich, head of structured
finance Australia and New Zealand.
His appointment is effective immediately.

Based in Auckland since 2007,
O’Rourke previously spent 13 years in London,
including a long career at Deutsche Bank serving most recently as European co-head
of global principal finance.

Frankfurt-headquartered Deutsche is a global banking group
and its asset & wealth management is one of the largest in the world,
with $1.24 trillion under management as of 31 December 2012.
