Apr 28 2009 | 10:31am ET

The Bank of New York Mellon has appointed Julian Poodhun, Huw Rees and Kelly Wilson to its alternative investment and broker-dealer global client management division.

The trio will be based in London and report to David Aldrich, managing director for Europe in the global client management financial institutions division.

Poodhun joins BoNY-Mellon as the lead client executive for the alternative investment sector. He is responsible for providing the full range of the firm’s products to alternative investment fund managers. Poodhun had previously spent nine years at Merrill Lynch where he was responsible for running the prime brokerage sales group in Boston as well as the international prime brokerage client services team in New York.

Rees and Wilson have both joined the broker dealer client management division from Lehman Brothers. Rees is head of the client executive team for the investment banking sector in Europe and will be responsible for delivering the full range of the bank’s products to broker dealers. Wilson joins as a client executive for broker dealers and works closely with Rees.

“We continue to expand due to a growing demand for our services from both alternative and investment banking clients and prospective customers,” said Aldrich. “This underlines our ability to deliver a full spectrum of products and services to the sector, from across the bank, as clients seek continuity, transparency and security in these uncertain times.”
