(Bloomberg) -- Deutsche Bank co-CEO John Cryan is considering the biggest overhaul of the lender’s management structure in more than a decade, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

The German lender is looking at abolishing the 19-member group executive committee, which advises the management board led by Cryan and co-CEO Juergen Fitschen, said the person, who asked not to be named as the deliberations are private. The plan is preliminary and may not be carried out, according to the person. A spokesman in Frankfurt declined to comment.
