"Maintaining our leadership as a provider of white-label services to other banks and financial institutions has been a strategic priority for BNY Mellon since the debut of our Enterprise business for North American clients more than 20 years ago," said J. David Cruikshank, executive vice president and chief executive officer of BNY Mellon Treasury Services.   "Small and mid-size banks are showing growing interest in treasury services as a growth opportunity, and they're also seeing increased demand, particularly from institutional and corporate customers, for advanced treasury service solutions.  On both counts, banks are seeing the advantages of our customizable, client-focused 'manufacturer-distributor' model in providing those enterprise solutions."
