's head judge is reportedly dating a man from Bali, less than a month after splitting from her boyfriend of 3 years John Utendahl last month.
Tyra met the mystery man while island hopping in December, but as soon as she got back the NYC she flew right back to spend the holidays with him.
He also will work closely with the head of Deutsche bank’s Americas businesses, Seth Waugh.
The two met in the 1980s working together at Salomon.
He is the founder and owner of Utendahl Group, the largest African American-owned investment banking organization in the United States.
“The big firms have retooled and refocused.” Utendahl’s business suffered from a lack of products and customers’ desire to work with larger firms with the most capital, he said.Utendahl began his career in finance in 1982 at Salomon Brothers, and then Merrill Lynch.In 1992 he founded his own, African American investment firm Utendahl Capital Partners.The hire also may get Deutsche Bank more mentions in the gossip pages.Utendahl, after all, is often seen around town with girlfriend Tyra Banks, the former supermodel and television personality.The 52-year-old Utendahl had run his own boutique investment bank, Utendahl Capital Partners LP, from 1992 until this year, when he gave it up to another minority-owned firm, Williams Capital.
