Deutsche Bank launched a concerted effort on September 1st 2010 to recruit members of the military into the investment bank. Deutsche Bank has 80,849 employees in 72 countries, and hopes to benefit from the leadership and exceptional training available in former and serving members of the US military.
As part of the US Military Veterans Outreach Program, the bank invited members of the military to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange to open trading.
Deutsche Bank Americas CEO Seth Waugh said of the project:
The military consistently produces great leaders at all levels of their organization, and we see tremendous potential for Deutsche Bank and other companies to utilize the leadership skills and training they receive during their service to their country.
Soldiers are also invited to attend the Eighth Annual Deutsche Bank Championship Golf Tournament held at the Tournament Players Club Boston in Norton, Mass., from Tuesday August 31st through Monday September 6th – free of charge.
