Swift Appoints Ex-BNY Mellon Exec Curtin as Head of Securities Initiatives for the Americas

Following the appointment of ex-BT Radianz MD Chris Church as global head of Securities last year, Swift has beefed up his new team with the addition of ex-Bank of New York Mellon executive Patrick Curtin. Curtin joins as head of securities initiatives for the Americas and will report to Church in his capacity as chief executive of the Americas as well as his securities role.

In his new role, Curtin will aim to expand Swift’s securities business in the Americas region and partner with key clients on securities related projects and initiatives. He will therefore be focused on STP throughout the trade cycle and responsible for collaboration with industry bodies, such as ISITC and Sifma, and securities market infrastructures, says Swift.

Curtin will also work with the Securities Steering Committee of the Swift board of directors and the Swift Markets Group to ensure that key drivers for the Americas help shape the cooperative’s Global Securities strategy.

Prior to joining Swift, he spent 12 years at the Bank of New York Mellon as executive vice president of Global Securities Services, where he oversaw the firm’s global custody, clearance, securities lending, foreign exchange, cash management and agency securities execution businesses. In this role, he was responsible for the firm’s relationships with investment managers, insurance companies, broker-dealers, banks and corporate clients.
