Senior Deutsche commodities exec to join Freepoint

Brian Cumming, a managing director within Deutsche Bank’s commodities group in New York, has resigned to join Freepoint Commodities.

Cumming held a variety of energy marketing and structuring roles at Deutsche, including global head of oil sales and structured origination, global head of flow sales across commodities, and co-head of commodity sales and origination for the Americas. He relocated from London to New York with Deutsche last year.

He is joining Freepoint in Stamford, Conn., where he will head a new structured commodity finance business.

Cumming previously worked with Freepoint executives David Messer and Frank Gallipoli at AIG Trading and Sempra Energy Trading, where he held several senior trading roles.

Before joining Deutsche in 2009, Cumming was global head of oil marketing, business development and strategy at J.P. Morgan in London and latterly in New York.

Neither Cumming nor Messer could be reached for comment.
