"We've been very involved with the rowing community worldwide for a number of years," BNY Mellon Wealth Management CEO Don Heberle said. "We are presenting sponsors of the storied Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston, and have been the title sponsor, along with our boutique Newton Investment Management, of the Oxford and Cambridge and Boat Races in London."
The announcement is a significant development for USRowing as the organization prepares for the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games. These funds will support the USRowing team and athletes as they train to compete on the world's greatest sporting stage.
"It has been a goal of ours to work with a company which shares our guiding principles of teamwork, commitment to excellence, and a focus on world-class performance and BNY Mellon is the perfect partner. They have demonstrated a strong commitment to rowing through their partnerships with Head of the Charles and the London Boat Races and we are incredibly honored that they have chosen to support USRowing," said Beth Kohl, Chief Marketing Officer for USRowing. "As our team prepares for Rio, we appreciate the support of an organization of this caliber that will allow us to further shine a spotlight on our sport, athletes and coaches. We look forward to an exciting year ahead."
