Deutsche Bank hires Salesforce chief scientist for new data role
JP Rangaswami has been appointed as chief data officer at Deutsche Bank, a newly-created role in which he will “play a key role in standardising the bank’s processes, tools and governance around information and in supporting its digital strategy”.
Rangaswami has been chief scientist at Salesforce for the past five years, and before that was at BT Group in a variety of technology roles, but he is well-known in the financial services sector from his time as global chief information officer at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein.
Rangaswami will join the bank in January next year. Based in London, he will report to Kim Hammonds, global chief information officer and global co-head of group technology & operations, and to Jim Turley, global co-head of GTO.
Hammonds said: “JP has a track record of partnering closely with senior business leaders to deliver innovation. He will help drive competitive advantage by deepening the Bank’s insights into clients and markets, while enhancing its data quality and controls.”
