About Josef Ackermann

Josef Ackermann is recognised as a fascinating and multi-faceted personality. He has a deep academic background with a PhD in Economics from the University of St. Gallen itself, which makes his return all the more meaningful. Under his leadership, Deutsche Bank became a leading global investment bank for the first time. Mr Ackermann was also Vice-Chairman of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and sat on the Board of Directors of the Zurich Insurance Group. He was also a sought-after negotiator for politicians and business leaders worldwide during turbulent times such as the financial crisis. Ackermann's time in office was characterised by strategic decisions that steered the company through complex financial markets and challenging times. His experiences and insights from this time offer valuable lessons about leadership, risk management and the dynamics of the global economy. But Ackermann's interests and expertise extend far beyond the financial sector. He is well known for his involvement in various educational and charitable organisations and has made significant contributions to the debate on ethical standards in business.
