BNY Mellon has appointed Winnie Chen as Singapore chief executive, effective immediately. She will be responsible for driving growth priorities in Singapore, while ensuring the firm’s governance and control structures are aligned with regulatory expectations.
Chen takes on the role in addition to her responsibilities as Asia-Pacific head of treasury services. She replaces Francis Braeckevelt, who will focus on his expanded role leading international operations, including Latin America.
