Ex-BNY Mellon salesman moves to BlackRock

Former BNY Mellon head of discretionary sales Adrian Sharpe has joined BlackRock as a northern England sales director. 

A 20-year veteran, Sharpe will manage relationships and provide advisers with market insight and fund information.

He will report to head of regional sales Dorian Hughes.

BlackRock UK retail sales head Jeremy Roberts says: “Having a local presence in each region is essential, not just for relationship purposes but so that we can provide hands-on support to our clients where needed.

“Adrian joins us with a wealth of experience which will be invaluable for this key area for BlackRock.”
