Annie consistently exemplifies role-model behaviour, highlighting the importance of diversity and inclusion. Her passion, energy and ability to engage people have made her a catalysing force in fostering inclusion in Manchester and across BNY Mellon since she joined in 2008. Her career with BNY Mellon began in the Income and Tax division, before she moved to Corporate Actions in 2010, working with various teams before ultimately joining her current client-facing role.

In 2016, Annie was recognised as a Diversity and Inclusion Champion, one of the company’s most highly regarded and visible honours, for her stewardship of regional and companywide diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Annie does not view diversity and inclusion initiatives merely as business prerogatives but rather as fundamental human rights, which emanates from her own personal narrative. Born in Buea, Cameroon, Annie moved to Wrexham, North Wales at age eight. Annie recognizes first-hand the importance of fostering an ethic of responsibility for making the world more just, sustainable and inclusive.

Annie holds a B.SC. (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Manchester. She has also achieved an Investment Operations Certificate and Certificate for Risk in Financial Services.
