Deutsche Bank has appointed Simon Behan as head of sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa in its alternative fund services business, part of the bank’s global transaction banking division.

Behan was previously head of European sales for BNY Mellon (formerly PFPC/PNC) global investment servicing. Prior to that, he had led European sales and marketing for GlobeOp, and held numerous executive positions within the financial services industry.

In his new role, Behan will be based in Deutsche Bank’s Dublin office and report to Stuart Landucci, AFS's global head of sales, and Mike Hughes, head of AFS for EMEA and Asia.

"Simon's appointment reflects the growing demand for AFS's services in Europe," Hughes said. "We are pleased to add his breadth of experience in the alternative fund business to the Deutsche Bank team."

Behan said, "Deutsche Bank's AFS business provides high quality services to the alternative fund industry and I look forward to helping them introduce those services to a wider range of clients."
