She was also a Director of Bankers Trust Investment Management Ltd., the Bank’s London investment management subsidiary. Prior to the formation of the Investment Management Group, she was a Vice President and Head of Defined Benefit Marketing and Client Services for the Global Fiduciary Services Division. Lynne’s forty person team was responsible for existing client revenues and revenue expansion for institutional trust and investment products for the Bank’s Defined Benefit business segment.
