BNY Mellon has appointed Mark Fenner as head of relationship management and sales for treasury services across the Middle East and Africa region.

Based in Dubai, Mr Fenner will lead teams of relationship and sales officers in Beirut, Cairo, Dubai, Istanbul and Johannesburg.

Mr Fenner, who joined BNY Mellon in 2000, has over 18 years of international banking experience in the Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and was previously responsible for client management across Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Prior to transferring to the company’s Europe division, Mr Fenner was based in New York as a client executive in the Middle East and Africa division. He joined BNY Mellon from Bank of America, where he held a variety of roles within the corporate and investment banking group, including Middle East structured finance origination.

Alan Verschoyle-King, head of treasury services for EMEA, said: “The Middle East and Africa continues to be a crucial region for BNY Mellon Treasury Services, and Mark’s appointment is a testament to our continued strong commitment to that business.

“Combining Mark’s depth of experience in client management, country management and credit with our full suite of Treasury products, we believe our clients will see a better level of service in these two areas.”
