Deutsche Bank AG, Germany’s biggest lender, appointed Josh Wilkes as head of investment-grade credit trading in the U.S.

Wilkes, who will retain his current role as head of municipal bond trading in the region, will continue to report to Tom Hartnett, the head of rates and investment-grade credit for the Americas, according to an internal memo today obtained by Bloomberg News.

Renee Calabro, a Deutsche Bank spokeswoman in New York, confirmed the contents of the memo.

Wilkes joined Deutsche Bank in 2007 from Goldman Sachs Group Inc., where he worked for 16 years, according to the memo.
