Former head of strategy for global technology and operations at Standard Chartered Bank, Natasha Davydova, has been appointed managing director of group technology and operations at the German bank.
Natasha Davydova will start at Deutsche Bank on 2 August. She will report to the global chief information officer at the bank's capital markets technology division, Anthony McCarthy.
According to Davydova, this is a newly-created role, which will see a move from the previously silo-driven structure of the bank's IT towards a more enterprise-focused approach.
"I am delighted to join the executive team at Deutsche Bank's group technology and operations and contribute to taking the bank to a new level of success," she told Computer Weekly.
"Deutsche Bank is home to incredibly talented people and a superb culture that are the foundations of its global platform and premier client franchise," she added.
"I could not be more impressed with the team at Deutsche Bank and look forward to working with them. I am energised by the possibilities of what we will create together."
Davydova left Standard Chartered in March, after five years at the investment bank. She was tasked with developing the firm's worldwide strategy and operations in 2008.
Her previous experience includes a ten-year stint at consultancy Accenture, where she led major projects for banks including JP Morgan and Merrill Lynch. Before joining Standard Chartered, she worked at EDS (now HP Enterprise Services), where she was responsible for orchestrating outsourcing deals for financial services giants including Lloyds TSB and Royal Bank of Scotland.
Davydova is also an advisory board member of mobile banking and payments firm Monitise and will continue in that role while working for Deutsche Bank.
