Meet Eric

 

Eric is the Chairman of BNY Mellon Pennsylvania and Global Head of Relationship Management & Business Development for the firm’s Treasury Services business, which supports clients in over 30 countries around the world. As Chairman, he oversees the firm’s largest employee base, cultivates local client relationships, and stewards community partnerships in the Pennsylvania region.

 

What excites you about working at BNY Mellon?

 

BNY Mellon is one of the most established and trusted financial service providers in the industry. Our ability to adapt, evolve and embrace innovation is the driving force behind our success. Recent announcements around real-time payments and digital assets are just some examples of the exciting ways that we’re able to deliver for our clients and transform our organization.

What does “celebrating diversity” mean to you?

 

Celebrating diversity is about creating an environment where people feel comfortable and encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work every day. As the Global Co-Chair for IMPACT, our employee business resource group focused on cultural diversity, which is open to all employees, I take this to heart. By assessing my own blind spots, learning to unlearn, and holding space for others to share their own lived experiences, I’ve become a more effective ally for my colleagues and team members.

 

Tell us how you’re living our “integrity” value at BNY Mellon.

 

A key part of integrity is acknowledging what you don’t know. Leaders lead, but leaders also learn – and the most impactful do so continuously. Asking questions, challenging conventional norms, and connecting with others to help problem-solve is how I live out this value at the firm.
