BNY Mellon Wealth Management says it has poached a veteran private banker from Wells Fargo Private Bank.

Patrice Wetzel joins BNY Mellon as a senior client strategist, based in Chicago and working with ultra-high-net-worth families, family offices, business owners, corporate executives, private equity and hedge fund principals, as well as foundations and endowments, according to the company. She previously served as a senior private banker in Wells Fargo’s Private Bank Group, BNY Mellon says.

Prior to Wells Fargo, Wetzel held a senior role at Northern Trust Private Banking, according to BNY Mellon. In all, she has been in the financial services industry for more than 30 years, including two decades of wealth management and 15 years of corporate lending, the company says.

BNY Mellon Wealth Management also hired a former Wells Fargo financial advisor in April, also as a client strategist.

The company has also tapped Bank of America’s Private Bank as well as JPMorgan to fill out its ranks of client strategists in recent months.

BNY Mellon Wealth Management had $292 billion in total client assets as of March 31, the company says.
