BNY Mellon Wealth Management’s recruiting campaign is in full swing. The wealth manager recently hired two senior directors of business development, the latest in a flurry of hires to boost its sales force by 50% by the end of 2014.
In New York, it nabbed a financial advisor from Raymond James to drum up business among ultra-high-net-worth clients in the New York Tri-State region. Eric Matheson will be responsible for business development and identifying opportunities for expanding the firm’s client base. Before joining BNY Mellon, he was a financial advisor and partner on a team managing more than $1 billion in assets at Raymond James.
