Early last month, Deutsche Bank hired Samuel Kim, a seasoned Morgan Stanley dealmaker in order to strengthen its investment banking operations in the Asia Pacific region.

Kim will serve as the mergers and acquisitions chairman for APAC at Deutsche Bank.

According to BNN Bloomberg, he will be located in Hong Kong and report to Mayooran Elalingham, Deutsche Bank’s head of investment banking coverage for APAC.

Kim worked for Morgan Stanley for 24 years, serving most recently as the region’s M&A chairman.

He held additional prominent Asia positions throughout his time at the American investment bank, including vice chairman of investment banking and head of M&A.

Furthermore, he previously worked at Salomon Brothers in New York before joining Morgan Stanley.

Some of the top South Korean financial backers and companies are among Kim’s numerous connections around the region.

This year, Deutsche Bank has been actively recruiting around APAC in an effort to bolster its workforce and reclaim market share from Wall Street competitors.
