Newton Investment Management, part of BNY Mellon Investment Management, has bolstered its board with a fresh chair.
Ex-Fidelity Investments Japan CEO Judy Marlinski, currently an independent non-executive board member, stepped into the new role earlier this month, having sat on the board since July of this year.
Marlinski succeeds Susan Noble, as Noble steps down after eight years as a board member and five years as chair.
“She brings a tremendous amount of global experience and pedigree to this role which will be invaluable as we continue to meet the needs of our clients through an expanded global platform,” said CEO Euan Munro.
“A big thank you to Susan for her eight years of service as a board member. Her counsel and leadership have made a significant contribution in shaping Newton’s growth, and we wish her all the best for the next stage of her career.”
