Deutsche Bank Eastern Europe Corporate Finance Head DiedOliver Suess
Miklos Kormos, Deutsche Bank AG’s London-based head of corporate finance for central and eastern Europe, Israel and Turkey, has died. He was 51.
He died of cancer in December, the Frankfurt-based lender said in a memo to employees. The statement was confirmed by a person familiar with its contents who asked not to be identified because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the death of an employee.
In 2007, Kormos joined Deutsche Bank, Europe’s biggest investment bank by revenue, as a managing director after the company acquired his banking boutique New Europe Capital Partners, according to a press release at the time. His hiring, along with two other additions to his team, was part of Deutsche Bank’s strategy to increase its 14 percent share of corporate-finance revenue in the regions, the company said then.
“We have been very saddened by the death of our colleague Miklos Kormos,” Deutsche Bank said in the memo. “Our condolences and thoughts are with his family at this time.”
Before founding New Europe Capital Partners, Kormos was in charge of the central and eastern European investment-banking business for New York-based JPMorgan Chase & Co. From 2001 to 2005, he was president of the bank’s Russian operations.
Kormos received a master’s degree in diplomatic relations from the University of Vienna and a doctorate in economics from the University of Budapest, according to EFinancialCareers, a website owned by New York-based Dice Holdings Inc.
