Anshu Jain - Indian Touted IS Next Deutsche Bank CEO - Cricket
The decision will quickly be put to the whole supervisory board, the paper said, while warning that the candidates were not yet assured of a majority vote.
The main issue resides in the fact that Fitschen, at age 63, is thought about close to retirement, & that his appointment would in effect leave Jain in charge.
He's been responsible for jogging Deutsche Bank's most profitable division.
Jain, who has spent much of his career in London, does not speak French.
Anshu Jain, who captains Deutsche Bank's cricket team, until recently owned a stake in the Mumbai Indians, the all-star Indian Premier League cricket team owned by the super-rich Mukesh Ambani.
Armed with a degree from Delhi University & an MBA in finance from University of Massachusetts Amherst, Jain first cut his teeth at Merrill Lynch in New York before moving to his present employer in London in 1995.
& despite jogging a division that earned its crust using the kind of opaque investment bets that brought the global financial method close to collapse in 2008, Jain is usually seen as having had a "good" crisis.
He is credited with having managed quickly to re-organise his division post-crisis & get it back to making money. In the first quarter of 2010, it generated three.7 billion euros (two.3 billion dollars) in pre-tax profits.
Swiss-born Ackermann is believed to have wanted former French central banker Axel Weber to succeed him, but Weber has in lieu decided to head the Swiss bank UBS.
Since 2002 he's been on the bank's executive committee & since April 2009 a member of the management board, earning an estimated 9.7 million euros last year, 200,000 euros over the man he might succeed, Josef Ackermann.
