Francis Antin has moved from CEO to chairman of The Boston Company Asset Management, the firm's parent company, Mellon Financial Corp., announced last week.
The move will allow Antin to focus on his duties as CEO of Mellon Growth Advisors, a subsidiary Mellon formed in September 2001 to specialize in growth equity investments for institutions, said Ronald O'Hanley, president of Mellon Institutional Asset Management.
Antin joined the firm in 1995 as COO of The Boston Company Asset Management and became CEO in 1997. He will be replaced by Corey Griffin, the company's current COO. Griffin joined the company in 1994 as a salesperson and was named marketing director in 1998 before becoming COO.
The Boston Company Asset Management manages approximately $23 billion.
