BNY Mellon Announces Two New Executive Appointments in Germany


Fred Bromberg becomes Country Executive, takes on wider regional responsibility

Thomas Brand takes on new Frankfurt-based regional executive role

FRANKFURT, March 9, 2011 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in asset management and securities servicing, has announced two new appointments to further strengthen the company's presence in Germany and the Central and South-Eastern Europe (CEE & SEE) region.

Fred Bromberg takes over as Country Executive for Germany and regional executive for the wider German Speaking and CEE & SEE region. Bromberg joined BNY Mellon in 2010 as a Senior Executive within the newly formed Strategic Client Group, a role he will retain going forward. Prior to joining BNY Mellon, Bromberg was Global Head of Sales and Relationship Management for JPMorgan's Treasury and Securities Services business.

Thomas Brand, who has served as Country Executive for Germany and regional executive for the German Speaking and CEE & SEE region, for the past 11 years, now becomes Business Executive for Financial Markets and Treasury Services (FM&TS) for the region. Encompassing BNY Mellon's Treasury Services, Corporate Trust, Alternative and Broker Dealer Services and Depositary Receipts businesses, FM&TS views the German Speaking and CEE & SEE region to be one of its key future growth areas. He will also support BNY Mellon subsidiary Pershing, the global financial business solutions provider, in the region.

Tim Keaney, Chairman of Europe at BNY Mellon, said: "Germany is one of six target global growth markets for BNY Mellon and, following our acquisition of BHF Asset Servicing last year, we are well positioned to further expand our business on a number of different fronts in this key European market over the coming year. Both Fred and Thomas will be instrumental in driving that growth strategy given the long experience and deep knowledge of German clients' needs that they bring to their new roles."
