Presenting Sponsor BNY Mellon Celebrates 51st Head Of The Charles Regatta

NEW YORK and BOSTON, Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of this weekend's Head Of The Charles Regatta for the third consecutive year and is equally delighted to support this iconic New England event now in its fifty-first year. The Regatta, will be held this Saturday, October 17th and Sunday, October 18th along the Charles River between Cambridge and Boston.

"For decades, athletes competing in the Head Of The Charles Regatta have exemplified the values we hold strong within our company—collaboration, hard work and dedication—and we commend the sacrifice and excellence put forward by every competitor in the race," said BNY Mellon Investment Management CEO Curtis Arledge. "Each year we look forward to hosting the domestic and international rowing community and its supporters in Boston and celebrating the deep tradition of the Regatta."

This year, for the first time, BNY Mellon is also entering its own team of rowers in the competition. The team is composed of BNY Mellon employees from around the world and is scheduled to compete in the Club Eights category on Saturday afternoon.  Crew members come from BNY Mellon Investment Management and Wealth Management, as well as several of the company's investment management boutiques, including Boston-based Standish Mellon Asset Management.

Arledge continued, "We are delighted that our international team of BNY Mellon employees is rowing in the Regatta and we are inspired by their motivation to compete in this challenging event.  We wish our colleagues the best of luck and many of us will be there to cheer them on in the race."

The Regatta will bring more than 600 universities, colleges and schools to the Boston area, home of BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Investment Services, Investment Management, and several of BNY Mellon Investment Management's investment boutiques. The competition will include Olympic, youth, club and collegiate athletes from across the United States and around the world, and it is expected to bring up to 400,000 fans to the banks of the river during the weekend.

In addition to the financial support for the race as its premier sponsor, BNY Mellon will once again present the BNY Mellon Championship Cups to the top men's and women's Championship Eights collegiate winners at the conclusion of the two-day event. 

Frederick V. Schoch, Executive Director of the Regatta, said, "We are deeply grateful that BNY Mellon continues to be part of the Head Of The Charles. The Regatta is a cherished Boston tradition, and BNY Mellon's sponsorship of the race weekend adds further luster to that legacy. This sponsorship is not only a boon for our race, but really for the City of Boston as a whole."
