The German bank said that Mr. Drinhausen will replace current co-general counsels Christof von Dryander and Simon Dodds, who will leave the company at the end of the year, and as of March 31, respectively. Mr. von Dryander and Mr. Dodds were both appointed as co-general counsels of Deutsche Bank two years ago.

Previously, Mr. Drinhausen served as Deutsche Bank's general counsel for Europe, the Middle East and Africa before taking over the global governance function in 2016.
