NEW YORK, April 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has named Suresh Kumar as its chief information officer (CIO), effective immediately. Currently CIO for the company's Financial Markets and Treasury Services businesses, as well as its Pershing LLC unit, Kumar is a member of the company's global Operating Committee and reports to Kurt D. Woetzel, BNY Mellon's head of global operations and technology, and also its chief administrative officer. Kumar, 54, joined the company in 1986 and in this new position will oversee the implementation of technology strategy, application development and technology infrastructure.

"We are fortunate to have a leader of this caliber to help us meet the technology needs of our clients and our company.
