Timing is everything. The New York Times and other news organizations report today that Rosemary Vrablic, the longtime personal banker at Deutsche Bank for client Donald Trump, has resigned. One of her colleagues, Dominic Scalzi, has also reportedly quit.
"I've chosen to resign my position with the bank effective Dec. 31 and am looking forward to my retirement," Ms. Vrablic, 60, said in a statement on Tuesday.
Rosemary Vrablic, a managing director and senior banker in the lender's wealth management division, recently handed in her resignation, which the bank accepted effective as of year-end, Dan Hunter, a spokesman for the lender, confirmed.
According to the New York Times, which first reported Vrablic's resignation, she arranged for the lender to grant hundreds of millions of dollars of loans to Trump's company.
From the NYT:
Deutsche Bank in August opened an internal review into a 2013 transaction between Vrablic and a company owned in part by Jared Kushner, and a client of Vrablic's. Dominic Scalzi, who played a role in that transaction, will also leave the bank.
