Leigh was one of the founding partners of New York Private Finance. Upon his decision to retire in 2021, his partners convinced him to work with them on an ongoing basis as a consultant. Accordingly, Leigh’s more than forty years of experience with all aspects of credit and underwriting continue to be accessible to NYPF and our clients.

Leigh served as Managing Director and Head of Deutsche Bank’s (“DB”) US private bank lending business and a member of the Executive Management Committee of DB’s US Private Wealth Management division. He was Chairman of Deutsche Bank Private Clients Corporation and a board member of Deutsche Bank Trust Company, N.A., two private banking subsidiaries of DB. Leigh led DB’s US private bank lending business for seven years, structuring numerous financings for entrepreneurs, family business owners and other substantial private investors. In his management roles, Leigh was responsible for the creation and implementation of DB’s global private banking risk assessment and credit management procedures, as well as credit product development.

Prior to DB’s acquisition of Bankers Trust Company (“BT”) in 1999, Leigh headed BT’s Private Bank Global Lending business which had professional banking teams and loan portfolios in the US, Europe and Asia. He began his banking career at BT, and initially spent 12 years managing financing relationships with governments, institutions, and corporations in the Middle East and Africa, ultimately heading BT’s wholesale and merchant banking activities in that region. Subsequently, he managed corporate finance leveraged transaction teams in BT’s European Merchant Bank in London.

Leigh is a graduate of Princeton University and earned an MBA from Harvard Business School.
