Deutsche Bank Replaces CEO

Longtime executive Christian Sewing was appointed chief executive officer on Sunday, succeeding John Cryan, who'll leave the German bank at the end of April. Along with the CEO change, the panel appointed management board members Garth Ritchie and Karl von Rohr as new presidents of the bank.

Rumors Cryan might be replaced after three years of losses had swirled for weeks.
