BNY Mellon Appoints Harris To Newly Created Post

May 9 2011 | 3:02pm ET

BNY Mellon has tapped Mitchell Harris, chair of BNY Mellon Asset Management’s fixed-income, cash and currency group, as president of investment management.

BNY Mellon spokesman Mike Dunn confirmed the appointment for Pensions & Investments Monday.

Harris will retain his current responsibilities in taking up the position, which is new. He will play a key role in client relations for both BNY Mellon Asset Management and BNY Mellon Wealth Management.

In May 2010, Harris and Jonathan Little were named co-CEOs of BNY Asset Management following the resignation of former CEO Ronald O’Hanley. In the end, neither interim CEO stepped into the job permanently—it went to former BlackRock fixed-income CIO Curtis Arledge in August 2010, who replaced O'Hanley as vice chairman of BNY Mellon.

In his new role, Harris will report to Arledge.
