Before joining Deutsche Boerse, Kengeter was an executive with UBS and served as CEO from 2010 to 2013. After leaving UBS, he became a visiting professor of finance at the London School of Economics’ department of finance.
Kengeter was co-head of Goldman Sachs Group's Asian securities business outside of Japan before he joined UBS in early 2009 as global co-head of fixed-income, currencies and commodities. He and Alexander Wilmot-Sitwell were named co-heads of UBS in April 2009, and in September 2010 Kengeter became the sole CEO when Wilmot-Sitwell moved to oversee business in Asia. In July 2012, UBS hired Andrea Orcel to co-head the unit with Kengeter, and Orcel took over as the sole head of the business later that year.
Kengeter spent three years as CEO of UBS before being reassigned to run the bank's non-core division. After leaving the company he continued to provide advice to UBS on winding down its non-core portfolio.
Kengeter holds a BA in Business Administration from Middlesex University, a Diplom-Betriebswirt from FH Reutlingen and a Master of Science in Finance and Accounting from the London School of Economics.
