The Bank of New York Mellon (BK) has created a new position to oversee its in-house training efforts.

The nation's largest custody bank said Monday it has named Dave DeFilippo its chief learning officer. DeFilippo will be responsible for running what the bank has dubbed BNY Mellon University, an in-house training initiative that ties to the bank's business and aims to foster a culture of learning company-wide.

DeFilippo has held a series of training-related posts for BNY's investment management business since joining the company in 2007. He earlier served in similar roles with Capital One Financial (COF) and Comcast (CCV).

"BNY Mellon University is all about developing our talented staff members," Karen Peetz, the company's president, said in a press release. "Dave and his team will bring the concept to life to help their colleagues learn, grow and thrive in the workplace."

DeFilippo, who will be based on Boston, is expected to earn a doctorate in education this summer from the University of Pennsylvania.
