Marina Lewin becomes head of sales for Asset Servicing the US for BNY Mellon

Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - BNY Mellon has named Marina Lewin head of sales for its Asset Servicing business in the Americas. Lewin will report to Samir Pandiri, CEO of Americas Asset Servicing & Alternative Investment Services. She will be based in New York, managing teams in several U.S. cities, as well as Dublin, London and Hong Kong.

In addition to her new role, Lewin will continue to lead global sales for the company’s Alternative Investment Services (AIS) group. BNY Mellon brought together its two investment services businesses – global custody and hedge fund administration – earlier this year.

“Our AIS business has more than doubled its assets under administration the last four years, with Marina a major force behind that growth,” said Pandiri. “As institutional investors continue to make alternatives a larger core of their portfolios, we’ll see a sharing in the kinds of services we can offer clients on both sides. Services like prime custody also point to the growing need among hedge fund managers for wider custodial capabilities.

“Plan sponsors and hedge fund managers alike are dealing with issues around transparency, new regulations, risk management, and operational efficiency. Marina brings strong leadership skills that will help us integrate the solutions we deliver to all our investment services clients and reach new ones as the industry evolves,” Pandiri added.

Lewin has been with BNY Mellon since 2000. Before joining BNY Mellon she was with JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank and has held a variety of roles in the securities industry, including in operations management, product management, and product development. She’s also had extensive experience leading major business integration projects.
