BNY Mellon names Subhankar Sinha Head of Blockchain
May 10, 2019

BNY Mellon says it has appointed Subhankar Sinha as Head of Blockchain, the latest addition to the firm's growing Digital team. Based in New York, Sinha will focus on developing partnerships with start-ups, accelerators, incubators and business partners to drive enterprise innovation and build ecosystems for all BNY Mellon blockchain initiatives.

"Subhankar has proven himself both as a blockchain thought leader and results-oriented tactician," said Roman Regelman, BNY Mellon Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Digital. "His addition to our team will build upon existing digital capabilities and help drive new and innovative client solutions."

Sinha joins from Nabartham LLC, which he founded to advise other startups on strategic partnerships, ecosystem governance and product-market fit for blockchain products. Prior to launching Nabartham, he was a Director at PwC where he co-founded and co-led that firm's blockchain consulting practice in the US.

Prior to joining BNY Mellon, Sinha's recent focus had been on the impact of blockchain and tokenization on lending and securitization. He had collaborated with start-ups and large companies over the past several years, where he developed blockchain use cases and new revenue opportunities in Lending, Reinsurance, Asset Management, Asset Servicing, Transaction Banking, Pharmaceutical, Logistics and Corporate Treasury.

Separately, BNY Mellon reported that it has appointed James (Jim) T Crowley as Chief Executive Officer of BNY Mellon's Pershing, effective July 1. Crowley, currently Pershing's Chief Operating Officer, will report to Todd Gibbons, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Clearing, Markets and Client Management. He will join BNY Mellon's Executive Committee.

Crowley succeeds Lisa Dolly, who will serve as Chairman of Pershing through year end.  In this capacity, she will act as an advisor to Crowley, assist in onboarding significant new business, and will continue to work with many of Pershing's most significant client relationships.

Dolly will continue to represent Pershing and BNY Mellon within the financial services industry throughout this period.
