Congratulations to BNY Mellon Wealth Management Chief Financial Officer Renee LaRoche-Morris for being selected as one of the 50 Most Influential Women in Private Wealth by Private Asset Management magazine.

LaRoche-Morris’s selection is based on a combination of peer recommendations; the level of responsibility they hold in their current and previous roles; and their impact on the industry, be it through public speaking, industry-recognized awards, or actively encouraging equality in the workplace.

“It’s an honor to be part of such an impressive group of talented women,” LaRoche-Morris said. “It highlights how a growing number of influential women in the wealth management industry are bringing a unique voice and perspective to their organizations.”

Furthermore, she said, “It’s critically important that we leverage diverse talent throughout the company to meet the needs of a marketplace in the midst of a profound demographic shift. I’m privileged to be working with so many successful women here at BNY Mellon Wealth Management. From our CEO Larry Hughes on down, our organization has a culture of promoting diversity and empowering every employee.”

All nominations were judged on their own merit by PAM’s editorial panel, the magazine’s editor said.

LaRoche-Morris has more than 20 years of financial services experience and joined BNY Mellon in 2003. Over the years, she has held a number of roles at the company, most recently as head of financial planning and analysis and head of corporate development for Pershing, a unit of BNY Mellon. She earned a bachelor’s degree in foreign affairs from the University of Virginia and a Master of Business Administration from Columbia University.
