BNY Mellon president Karen Peetz to retire


BNY Mellon president Karen B Peetz has decided to retire from the company on 31 December 2016.

Peetz, BNY Mellon's first female president, joined the company in 1998 and has played a pivotal role through periods of significant change in the organisation, including the navigation of post-financial crisis challenges and the adoption of a more strategic, market- and solutions-led approach to client relationship management.
Peetz has been consistently recognised for her contributions to the financial services industry. She has been named number one on American Banker's "25 Most Powerful Women in Banking" ranking in recognition of her management style, crisis management skills, influence and charitable endeavours. 
"Karen's leadership, industry expertise and partnership will be missed by BNY Mellon, and we are extremely thankful for her many contributions during her tenure," says Gerald Hassell, chairman and CEO of BNY Mellon.
Peetz oversees the company's global client management and regional management, its treasury services business and its regulatory oversight functions. Prior to her appointment as president in January 2013, she led BNY Mellon's former financial markets and treasury services group, comprised of the alternative investment services, broker-dealer and adviser services, corporate trust, depositary receipts and treasury services businesses.
