Krause, who joined Deutsche Bank from luxury auto maker BMW <BMWG.DE> in 2008, will take on a new role at Germany's flagship lender, leading a division called strategy and operational excellence, Manager Magazin said.

Schenck joined E.ON, Germany's biggest energy group, in 2006 as chief financial officer from Goldman Sachs and then switched back to investment banking for Goldman in London in 2013. He worked at consultancy McKinsey before moving to Goldman in 2001.
