German Fund Seeks Wider Deutsche Bank Chairman Powers, Euro Says

More influence from designated Chairman Paul Achleitner, who will succeed Clemens Boersig after the annual shareholder meeting this month, would prevent potential friction as Deutsche Bank introduces a dual management structure that will see investment banker Anshu Jain and Germany head Juergen Fitschen become co-chief executive officers, the newspaper said.
