BNY Mellon announces new appointment for sales and client support team in Germany

  • Expansion of Treasury Services team reflects strategic commitment to continued growth through payment and trade finance solutions tailored for German clients

BNY Mellon has announced an expansion in its sales and client support team in Germany with the appointment of Güngör Taner as Vice President of Sales and Relationship Management. Joining BNY Mellon from Royal Bank of Scotland, Taner brings a wealth of experience from the banking sector across Germany, and will support clients across the entire spectrum of the German financial institution (FI) transaction banking space, including savings banks.

Taner’s appointment follows major developments at BNY Mellon: the expansion of its global payments infrastructure, which now allows for enhanced functionality for currency payments from Frankfurt and London; and the trade processing partnership with Helaba (Landesbank Hessen-Thuringen) and the G25 German Sparkassen.

Based in the Frankfurt office, Taner reports to Daniel Verbruggen, Head of Relationship Management, Developed Markets, for BNY Mellon’s Treasury Services team in EMEA. “Güngör joins us at a time when BNY Mellon is strengthening its leadership in global payment services,” says Verbruggen. “Key to this strategy is excellent client relationships in every locality we operate in. This is where Güngör will be adding significant value, given his vast knowledge of dealing with German clients and ability to provide exceptional service and tailored solutions to our German partners.”

Taner’s extensive experience includes roles as Industry Portfolio Manager at Deutsche Bank, where he was responsible for the credit strategy with the European savings & Swiss cantonal banks segment; Director in the FI Coverage Team at ABN AMRO, covering sovereign, supra-nationals and agency clients (SSAs) in Germany, Austria and Switzerland; and Director, Senior Sales and Origination for German FIs and non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) at Royal Bank of Scotland.
