Deutsche Bank’s Global Transaction Banking business has appointed Willem Calame as Head of Commodity Trade Finance for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (ex-Germany) region.

Calame has enjoyed a long career with Deutsche Bank and for the past 14 years has worked in commodity finance. In his new role, reporting to Luca Corsini, Head of Trade Finance, EMEA (ex-Germany), he will set the strategy for driving revenues across the commodity trade finance business in the region, and will also deliver the commodity trade finance platform to Deutsche Bank’s commodity traders.

Calame has broad experience in the Bank’s Structured Commodity Trade Finance team in EMEA where he specialised in Africa and worked under John MacNamara. Calame was also pivotal in building relationships with large commodity traders. Prior to Deutsche Bank, he worked extensively in loan capital markets.

Although headquartered in Amsterdam, Calame also has responsibility for the Bank’s commodity trade finance teams in Switzerland and other locations in the Netherlands.

Deutsche Bank’s commodities trade finance franchise has been broadly recognized across the industry. TXF News named Deutsche Bank Best Overall Commodities Finance Bank earlier this year and for the past three years, the Bank has won Trade & Forfaiting Review’s Structured Commodity Trade Finance award.
