BNY Mellon has recruited former Visa innovation lead Niamh De Niese to head up its Emea technology incubator.
THE US bank opened the Emea Innovation Centre in October with the objective of bringing together tech start-ups, developers, industry experts and researchers to work with clients on developing new products and services.
The Centre is BNY Mellon’s sixth to open in the last three years, four of them in the US and two in India.
The bank has been on the look-out for a new director for the Emea facility following the departure of former Centre head Leda Glyptis to Sapient Global Markets in January.
At Visa, De Niese headed up the card scheme's innovation labs in London, Berlin and Tel Aviv.
Lucille Mayer, global head of innovation and client experience delivery at BNY Mellon, states: “Our Emea Innovation Centre is ideally located to be a catalyst centre for new solutions that we can envision and develop alongside our clients and fintechs. Under Niamh’s leadership, we anticipate a step-wise increase in collaborative innovation in financial services.”
