LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Barclays Investment Bank today announces the appointment of Sven Baumann as Head of Investment Banking for Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH).

Mr. Baumann will provide leadership and strategic direction to Barclays’ investment banking business in the DACH region, working closely with Ingrid Hengster, who joined the bank as Country CEO for Germany this week.

Mr. Baumann joins Barclays from Citigroup where he has spent the past seven years. Most recently, he ran their investment banking franchise in Germany and was also responsible for covering a wide range of clients including financial sponsors, technology, healthcare and consumers in the DACH region. Prior to Citi, Mr. Baumann worked for three years at Bank of America Merrill Lynch where he was a Managing Director responsible for advising private equity firms on European investments, particularly investments in German-speaking Europe. Previously, he spent 10 years at Deutsche Bank where he joined as a partner and rose through the ranks to Managing Director, holding a number of M&A and hedging roles.

Pier Luigi Colizzi, Head of Investment Banking, Continental Europe, and Co-Head of M&A, EMEA, said: “As the largest market in Continental Europe, Germany represents a significant opportunity for Barclays. Sven’s extensive experience in investment banking, combined with his strong knowledge of the local market, will generate great value for our clients.

Ingrid Hengster commented, “Sven’s appointment advances our investment plan in Germany and I look forward to working with him to accelerate the growth of our investment banking business here and in the DACH region.

Mr. Baumann’s appointment follows that of Ingrid Hengster, and Anthony Samengo-Turner, Head of M&A for DACH who joined the platform last year. When Mr. Baumann joins Barclays in April, he will be based in Frankfurt and will report to Pier Luigi Colizzi.
