The move will allow Antin to focus on his duties as CEO of Mellon Growth Advisors, Mellons asset management company that was formed in September 2001 to specialize in growth equity investments for institutions, said Ronald OHanley, 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 companys 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 for more than 300 mutual fund, corporate, endowment and foundation clients. The company also sub-advises mutual funds for The Dreyfus Corp., another Mellon subsidiary.
