Doug Kline has been named a managing director and head of hedge fund consulting, the firm said yesterday. Kline joins the firm from hedge fund Viking Global Investors, where he spent more than a decade. He was a partner and chief information officer at Viking, overseeing all of its technology systems since the firm’s founding in 1999.

Deutsche Bank said John Budzyna would remain a senior strategic adviser at its prime brokerage business.
