DWS Investments, the retail mutual funds arm of Deutsche Bank, named Michael J. Woods as regional head and chief executive, adding those titles and responsibilities to his current role as U.S. head of distributions.

Woods joined DWS in August 2009 after leading Evergreen Investments' financial intermediaries and institutions group, a division he established and developed into the firm's largest revenue-producing unit.

Before joining Evergreen, Woods was CEO of XTF Global Asset management, a New York-based quantitative exchange traded funds asset manager.
