Frankfurt / Main (dpa) - Commerzbank corporate customer boss Roland Boekhout is about to leave, according to dpa information.

According to information from financial circles, the supervisory board of the Frankfurt-based MDax group wants to discuss the personnel issues in a special meeting this Friday (November 27).

Corresponding media reports were thus confirmed on Tuesday.

Initially, “Wirtschaftswoche” reported that the manager would be leaving the institute shortly.

Commerzbank did not want to comment on the reports.

Boekhout had only taken up the post at Commerzbank in January.

In the meantime, the manager had been traded as a possible successor for Commerzbank boss Martin Zielke, who was leaving at the end of the year.

As head of the direct bank ING-Diba, which now operates as ING Germany, the Dutchman promoted digitization and business with corporate customers from 2010 to 2017 - both of which are important fields for Commerzbank.

However, the supervisory board decided that from January the previous Deutsche Bank manager Manfred Knof should push ahead with the restructuring of the partially nationalized institute.

In view of advancing digitization, further drastic cuts in the branch network and job cuts are expected.
