The firm, TGG, is promoting "a novel approach to address the challenges that large complex organizations face in compliance, fraud, corruption, and culture and reputation," said an email to Deutsche executives from Hamid Biglari, one of Pandit's former Citigroup lieutenants and a managing partner of the new venture.

"We think the results are transformative for companies looking to create a culture of performance and integrity," the email said.

Pandit abruptly left Citigroup in October 2012 amid complaints about his management style.
