US - Mellon Financial Corporation has appointed Stephen Burke as vice chairman of Boston-based Standish Mellon Asset Management.
Formerly Standish, Ayer & Wood, Standish Mellon was purchased by Mellon in July 2001 and provides investment management services to institutional clients and high net individuals.
Commenting on the appointment, Ronald O’Hanley, Mellon vice chairman and president of Mellon Institutional Asset Management, said: “[Burke’s] marketing expertise, together with his both broad and deep knowledge of the Mellon organisation, will be invaluable to our efforts to bring Mellon’s broad distribution platform and resources to Standish Mellon clients.”
In his new role, Burke joins the Standish Mellon office chaired by Ted Ladd and consisting of fellow vice chairmen Richard Wood and Thomas Sorbo.
He comes to Standish from the Dreyfus Corporation, Mellon’s New York-headquartered mutual fund arm, where he started in 1981. Most recently Burke served as president of marketing and advertising for the firm.
