Matthias Buck joined Deutsche Bank Group in 2000 and since then has worked in various functions and areas of the bank. He has been Global Head Strategy Corporate Bank since July 2019 and Chief Transformation Officer Corporate Bank since March 2020.

Dr. Matthias Bock is a member of the Management Board and General Counsel of Goldman Sachs Bank Europe SE, where he has been particularly involved in recent years in the establishment of the EU headquarters in Frankfurt.

Commenting on the change of management board, Dr. Bettina Orlopp, Chairwoman of the Management Board, said: "I am very pleased that with Matthias Buck and Dr. Matthias Bock we managed to add two experienced and committed personalities to the Management Board of the Association of Banks in Hesse. The main task of our association is to strengthen Frankfurt as a financial centre. We are pleased that Deutsche Bank is still represented on the Board of Managing Directors and that Goldman Sachs, an institution that recently chose Frankfurt as the location for its EU headquarters, completes our board. We look forward to continuing the successful work of the Association of Banks in Hesse as the new board team together with our Managing Director Sarah Schmidtke.”
Dr. Bettina Orlopp added: "On behalf of the Association of Banks in Hesse, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Tilman Wittershagen for his outstanding support, as he represented the Association with immense commitment for 13 years, three of those as chairman. Our great thanks also go to Dr. Lutz Raettig, who is stepping down as Deputy Chairman after 19 years. Not only the association, but also the entire Frankfurt financial centre benefited from his great commitment and his extraordinary personal network".
