Christopher Beaudet, who was a managing director and co-head of the ABS group at Deutsche Bank Securities, left the company recently. While at Deutsche, much of Beaudets focus was on the securitization of auto loans and leases, equipment leases, commercial loans and franchise loans. He joined the company in February 2000 as part of a group of bankers that Deutsche recruited from what was then Credit Suisse First Boston. He was credited with building Deutsche into one of the top underwriters of auto and equipment ABS in recent years. His departure leaves Andrew Peisch, also a managing director who joined in 2003, as sole managing director and head of the ABS group at Deutsche.
