06 March 2014
Gregory Roath replaces Eleni Wang in Asia-Pacific
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.
"The expansion of our international businesses is key to our
company’s ongoing success," noted BNY
Mellon’s Lackey. "Asia represents a dynamic and
growing market, and we see many exciting opportunities in the
region. We continue to gain market share and benefit from the
steady investments we are making to help Asian institutions
succeed at every stage of the investment lifecycle."
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."
