Sebastian Krämer-Bach will take over as Global Head of Communications & Marketing at DWS Group. After a phase of orderly transfer of responsibilities, he will succeed Adib Sisani, who leaves the firm after over five years at his own request. Krämer-Bach comes from Deutsche Bank, where he was most recently responsible for the media activities as Global Head of External Communications since 2019. He reports directly to Stefan Hoops, CEO of DWS.
“Communications and Marketing are key functions for the further development of DWS. I am very pleased that with Sebastian Krämer-Bach we gain a communications professional who will confidently manage and further drive the engagement with our stakeholders. One of his tasks will be to work out with our sales colleagues what targeted communication with employees and external stakeholders and a product marketing to customers will look like. At the same time, I regret that Adib Sisani has decided to leave DWS to pursue new challenges. We would like to thank him for his leadership and successful, tireless work during his time with the firm, during which he has been a true force driving the perception of DWS. We wish him all the best for the future.”Stefan Hoops, CEO of DWS
