Deutsche Bank continues with its clear commitment to grow in private banking in Spain and has announced the reorganization of the management leadership of the high net worth management part in our country this Wednesday. Susana Valero, former UBS, will assume the direction of Private Bank in Spain under the command of Íñigo Martos, CEO and head of private banking at the bank for southern Europe, in Spain and Italy, and Belgium.
The bank assures that this appointment responds to “the purpose of continuing with the strategic commitment of being the reference bank for business families, high net worth and affluent clients in the country.” Valero will join the Executive Committee of the bank in Spain. Until her appointment, the new director of Private Bank was Regional Head of Products and Advisory & Sales in Spain.

For her part, María González-Adalid assumes the new role of Chief Operating Officer for Private Bank Italy, Spain and Belgium, in addition to her role as Country COO of Deutsche Bank in Spain.
