FRANKFURT, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) said on Sunday that it has poached Olivier Vigneron as the German lender's new group chief risk officer from France's Natixis.

Vigneron, who was also chief risk officer at Natixis, will succeed Stuart Lewis, who had earlier this year announced he would retire next year.

He will join the bank in March.
