BNY Mellon Wealth Management Hires Directors In Philadelphia-Delaware Region

BNY Mellon Wealth Management has appointed three new directors for the Mid-Atlantic region.

Michael Barron, Marisa Facciolo and Kevin Leigh have been named senior directors for business development, reporting to Garrett Alton, managing director and regional sales manager.

Barron started earlier this month and is based in Philadelphia, PA. He previously worked with ICC Capital Management, where he served as director and portfolio manager. Prior to that, he founded Revolution Capital, where he was a principal and portfolio manager.

Facciolo started in early May and divides her time between Philadelphia and Wilmington, DL. Prior to joining BNY Mellon, she was a wealth strategist at Northern Trust. Between 2007 and 2010, she served as senior private client advisor at Wilmington Trust.

Leigh joined the firm in May and is based in Philadelphia. She was previously an investment banker with Griffin Financial Group and served as managing director at Keystone Equities Group, from 2003 to 2009.

In other recent developments, earlier this month, BNY Wealth Management named Eric Stein as senior director for business development, based in the firm's Miami, FL, office.

The above-mentioned moves are all part of BNY Mellon's recently-announced recruiting campaign to bolster its wealth management business. View an interview with BNY Mellon Wealth Management CEO, Lawrence Hughes, about that here
