Global custodian ABN Amro Mellon has made two key appointments to its sales team.
Marcel Massing joins the firm from settlement group Euroclear’s Brussels headquarters where he worked for seven years. He will be based in Amsterdam and focuses on Dutch business development for the joint venture.
Dean Handley will be based in London. He spent the last year as deputy head of corporate trust at HSBC Global Investor Services, with additional sales responsibilities in the financial services sector. At ABN-Mellon he will focus on building business in the UK pension fund market.
Commenting on the appointments Simon Shapland, the firm’s regional head of sales and marketing added: “We have moved into a new phase of our evolution and aim to capitalise on the successes of the last couple of years in Europe, where we have scored some high profile wins.”
