BNY Mellon has added two new leaders for its digital team, responsible for identifying new digital businesses to launch and improving client experiences.

Alina Peradze has joined as a digital business development leader, while Janelle Prevost has been appointed as a client journey reimagination leader for BNY Mellon.

Peradze will lead the build-out and launch of new digital businesses, while Prevost will spearhead the bank’s efforts to rethink how it delivers differentiated capabilities for its clients and maximise end-to-end value.

“Our clients’ needs demand that we deliver the very best digital experience and innovation. Our growing bench of digital talent will sharpen and unlock even more value in a constantly changing, disruptive environment,” said Roman Regelman, senior executive vice president and head of digital, BNY Mellon.

Peradze was the former CEO of Saga Group, managing its strategy projects and led the investment in early stage private companies. Prevost joins from BlackRock where she worked on the asset managers’ digital transformation project.

The appointments follow the recent addition of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics expert, Michael Demissie, from State Street last month as an advanced digital solutions leader.

Demissie will lead a newly established enterprise-level capability to define BNY Mellon’s approach and deployment of AI, robotics, machine learning and blockchain.
