BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services, has named Tom Ahern as head of its Corporate Trust business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Ahern, with more than 13 years of Corporate Trust experience, had led BNY Mellon's Corporate Trust business in Ireland and simultaneously led the Global Analytics function for the Corporate Trust operation.
"Under Tom's direction, BNY Mellon has significantly grown its Corporate Trust operations in Ireland, which has evolved into a core service area for our European operations," said Eric Kamback, chief executive officer of BNY Mellon's Corporate Trust group. "Tom also led our transformation initiatives in Analytics and Corporate Trust Ireland and has the capability to apply his expertise across all of EMEA."
Kamback noted that Ahern has a strong background in collateralized loan obligations (CLOs) and loan administration. "BNY Mellon has identified these areas as global growth opportunities because of the Corporate Trust group's expertise and strong track record in supporting these issuances," he added.
Ahern joined BNY Mellon in 2006 and in 2009 was named to manage the Structured Portfolio Services business within EMEA Corporate Trust. Prior to joining BNY Mellon, he worked for Bank of Ireland, Daiwa Securities, and Colonial First State Investments.
