Two Want Deutsche Bank CEO to Leave By May, Handelsblatt Says

Nov. 18 (Bloomberg) -- At least two members of Deutsche Bank AG’s board want Chief Executive Officer Josef Ackermann to leave before May 2012, Handelsblatt reported today, without saying where it got the information.

A good time for him to leave would be after the results for the full year 2011 are presented on Feb. 2, 2012, the newspaper said, citing an unnamed “top banker.” Ackermann is scheduled to leave the board at the annual general meeting on May 31, 2012.
