Handshake 3Deutsche Bank has hired Jeff Urwin, as co-head of corporate banking & securities and head of corporate finance.

Urwin joins Deutsche Bank from JP Morgan, where he was co-head of global banking. He worked at JP Morgan from 2008, when he joined as part of the firm's acquisition of failed investment company, Bear Stearns.

Urwin will become a member of Deutsche Bank's Group Executive Committee and will be based in New York. He will lead Deutsche Bank's investment banking division together with Colin Fan, who is also head of markets.
