NEW YORK: BNY Mellon has hired former Credit Suisse MD Eva Radtke as global head of corporate comms.
Based in New York, Radtke officially starts in her new position April 3. Overseeing a team of more than 20 people, Radtke reports to chief human resources officer Monique Herena, a longtime PepsiCo alum.
Radtke is replacing Kevin Heine, who exited the company to head up corporate comms at New York Life in late 2016.
Radtke will be responsible for the bank’s corporate comms strategy as well as its brand and reputation management, according to a release.
She was not immediately available for comment.
Most recently, Radtke worked at Credit Suisse as MD in corporate comms, overseeing comms for its global investment banking division, financial comms for Credit Suisse Group, as well as executive comms for its CEO. Prior to that, Radtke served as head of IR in the Americas, according to her LinkedIn profile.
During her time at Credit Suisse, she helped manage comms around the company’s financial disclosure during the 2008 financial crisis, and strategy changes amid evolving regulations.
Before joining Credit Suisse, Radtke held positions without a comms mandate at several banks. At Deutsche Bank, she was a director of a team that formulated strategy for "transaction services businesses," among other things. She also had roles at Prudential Securities and Salomon Smith Barney, according to her LinkedIn profile.
