Deutsche Bank MD Bowman quits role for post at Tulchan

Deutsche Bank high flyer and former investment banker Hilary Bowman has quit to take charge of the day-to-day running of City PR firm Tulchan Communications.

Bowman, currently an MD in Deutsche Bank’s European corporate advisory group, is to join Tulchan in September, taking over the management of the agency and leaving founder Andrew Grant to concentrate on client counsel.

She said: ‘My primary role is to manage the firm and help take it to the next stage of development. Tulchan has quickly established itself to a size where it now requires people to focus on the management of the firm and allow consultants to focus on clients.’

She leaves Deutsche Bank after more than 16 years working in investment banks.

After qualifying as a lawyer with Linklaters, Bowman moved into investment banking, working as a director at the then Hambro Magan and then Bankers Trust, which was later bought by Deutsche Bank.

Her current role, which she leaves next week, sees her co-manage the corporate advisory group’s resources across Europe – some 250 people.

Grant said that at Tulchan, Bowman will help with management issues such as people development.

Tulchan has hired a number of heavy hitters since its foundation three years ago.

Former Morgan Stanley European investment banking chief David Trenchard joined as a senior adviser in February (PRWeek, 28 February), following the hire of former Sunday Times City editor Kirstie Hamilton last April.
