BNY Mellon has promoted Gregory Roath to Asia-Pacific head of
global client management, replacing Eleni Wang who was
appointed Asia Pacific head of investment services last year.
Roath will report to Steve Lackey, Asia-Pacific chairman. He
remains on BNY Mellon's Asia-Pacific executive committee and
Asia-Pacific operating committee.
Neil Atkinson takes over Roath's former position of
Asia-Pacific head of depositary receipts (DR). Atkinson joins
BNY Mellon's Asia Pacific executive committee and the DR senior
management team, led by Christopher Kearns, chief executive
officer of BNY Mellon's DR business based in New York.

company's ongoing success," noted BNY Mellon's Lackey. "Asia

Lackey continued: "Greg's promotion is a reflection of his
strong leadership and outstanding business judgment. His global
acumen will play an integral role as we continue to drive
greater collaboration across our investment services and
investment management businesses."
Kearns added: "DRs continue to prove to be an effective way for
companies to raise capital in the region. We see great
opportunities from Asia Pacific issuers this year as improved
sentiment and climbing equity prices continue to draw issuers
back to global markets for their capital needs. Neil brings
many years of experience and strong international credentials
to his new role, and is the ideal candidate to build upon
Greg's many achievements and continue to drive our DR business
forward in the region."
