Deutsche Bank $970 Billion DWS Group CEO Asoka Woehrmann Resigns after Police Raid on Greenwashing, Head of Corporate Bank Stefan Hoops Appointed as new CEO

3rd June 2022 | Hong Kong

Deutsche Bank independent asset management group DWS ($970 billon AUM) CEO Asoka Woehrmann has resigned (9/6/22) after police raided DWS office in a greenwashing probe (false or misleading claims about the environmental benefits of a product, service, technology), with Deutsche Bank Head of Corporate Bank Stefan Hoops appointed as the new DWS CEO (10/6/22) and David Lynne (Head of Corporate Bank APAC) to takeover as the new Deutsche Bank Head of Corporate Bank.  DWS outgoing CEO Asoka Woehrmann: ”I have always dedicated my entire energy to the benefit of DWS; most notably since returning as CEO in October 2018.  Today, after the three most successful years in its history, DWS is significantly more profitable, is stable and has continued to perform well in a difficult market environment. At the same time, the allegations made against DWS and myself in past months have become a burden for the company, as well as for my family and me. In order to protect the institution and those closest to me, I would like to clear the way for a fresh start.”
