Certosimo currently oversees hedge fund and derivatives servicing, securities clearance, collateral management and treasury services. In his new role, he will lead the company’s foreign exchange, capital markets and derivatives trading businesses worldwide.

“Art’s outstanding track record in establishing leadership positions in the businesses he oversees, along with the widespread respect and recognition he has earned in our industry, makes him the ideal choice to lead the continued growth and success of our Global Markets businesses,” said Hassell.

Certosimo serves as a member of the board of directors of DTCC, Promontory Interfinancial Network, CMET Finance Holdings and International Derivatives Clearing Group (IDCG). He also serves on a number of key industry committees. Prior to joining BNY Mellon in 1998, he held senior roles at Morgan Stanley and Chase Manhattan.

Ruane, who joined BNY Mellon in 1993, served in key roles within the company’s Global Client Management division before being named CEO of Alternative Investment Services in 2009. He is a member of the advisory boards of The UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate School of Business in Dublin and The Frank G. Zarb School of Business in New York.
