NEW YORK, January 15, 2014 — BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has hired Daniel Scavone as regional managing director for BNY Mellon Wealth Management with responsibility for leading the firm’s wealth management business in New Jersey. He reports to Doris Meister, president for U.S. Markets in New York Tri-State.
