BNY Mellon treasury services has appointed two to its leadership team: Susan Skerritt is now leading global product management and strategic development for treasury services, and Alan Verschoyle-King has been named head of global sales and relationship management. Both will report directly to David Cruikshank, chief executive officer (CEO) of BNY Mellon treasury services.
Formerly head of business strategy, development and investment for BNY Mellon’s financial markets and treasury services (FMTS) group, Skerritt replaces Al Briand, who assumed duties earlier this year as chief administrative officer for BNY Mellon’s corporate trust business. Verschoyle-King moves into his new role from his current position as head of BNY Mellon treasury services for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Verschoyle-King’s replacement has not yet been announced; Skerritt’s FMTS responsibilities will be assumed by Jean Wynn, chief administrative officer for FMTS.
Skerritt moved to BNY Mellon in 2006 from Treasury Strategies, where as partner she was responsible for the corporate consulting practice. Holding a BA from Hamilton College and an MBA from New York University, she has also served in treasury services-related positions with Manufacturers Hanover Trust, Ernst & Young and Morgan Stanley.
Verschoyle-King joined BNY Mellon in 2006 after six years with ABN Amro Bank in London, where he served as head of working capital management for EMEA. He has also held senior treasury services positions with Bank of America and Citibank. He holds a law degree and MS in finance from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and contributor to industry publications.
