Deutsche Bank has appointed David Wu to run its global transaction banking business in Taiwan. Wu assumes responsibility for leading DeutscheÆs transaction banking strategy in the country and maximising its product penetration in existing and new Taiwanese market segments.

From the firmÆs Taipei offices, Wu reports regionally to Thomas DuCharme, head of Deutsche BankÆs GTB business in Asia-Pacific ex-Japan, and locally to James Wu, the bank's chief country officer.

Wu has approximately 13 years of related experience. Before making the move to Deutsche, he worked with ABN AMRO where he managed financial institutions and corporates in the Greater China region.

His hiring follows a steady stream of appointments for GTB in the region. This year the bank has made senior appointments in its cash management and trade business in Malaysia, Thailand, China and Singapore. Most recently, Deutsche named Mylene Caparas as head of GTB in the Philippines.
