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.
