Mellon Bank Corp. hired a national business manager for its charitable gifts office, a new position in its private banking division.

The Pittsburgh-based bank announced Monday that Linda R. FitzPatrick was named a first vice president in its Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Co. subsidiary.

Mellon Private Capital Management administers more than $17 billion of assets for endowments and foundations, charitable gift programs, and wealthy families.

Most recently, Ms. FitzPatrick was director of planned giving product management at Fidelity Tax-Exempt Services Co., a unit of Fidelity Investments in Boston. Before that, she managed planned giving in the investment management division of Fleet Financial Group Inc.

She is a member of the National and New England Planned Giving Councils and the Rhode Island Planned Giving Council Executive Board.
