BNY Mellons Dan Crisp named to 2015 Leading 100 LGBT Executives List

One of BNY Mellon’s most senior managers in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) has been officially recognized as a leader on LGBT matters for weaving inclusion into the very fabric of the firm, creating a culture that celebrates diversity and mentoring junior LGBT colleagues across the business.

Dan Crisp, Chief Information Risk Officer and Head of Technology Compliance, EMEA, has been named to the 2015 Leading 100 LGBT Executives List.

The list, which was compiled by the Financial Times and LGBT business network OUTstanding, recognizes LGBT executives for their role in the wider campaign to encourage greater diversity within firms and their boardrooms.  

“Dan leads by example, by being himself. An approachable, ‘out’ senior leader which sets the tone for our business that is of being able to reach your potential by being you,” said BNY Mellon’s Joanna Symes, Head of Diversity & Inclusion, EMEA.

“His contribution to PRISM, our LGBT network, sets him apart. Through his links to the wider LGBT community, Dan constantly exposes us to new ideas and is helping to shape our LGBT agenda in EMEA.”

OUTstanding CEO and founder, Suki Sandhu, commented: “Dan is a true role model, proving that you can be openly LGBT in business and be a huge success. I’m certain he will provide inspiration to anyone who fears that they may have to be closeted at work, and waste valuable effort muting their authentic selves.

“He deserves credit for the leadership he shows in welcoming people of all backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities.”
