Jack Meckler has resigned as president of Phoenix-Hecht, a cash management research firm, to join consulting firm Littlewood, Shain & Co.

Mr. Meckler, 51, will assume his new position as senior vice president at Littlewood Shain on Oct. 1.

"I was attracted to the work Littlewood Shain is doing in consulting and systems development," Mr. Meckler said. "They are breaking new ground in operations and cash management."

Tracking Customer Overlap

One of the Littlewood Shain's recent projects was to develop a system for Bank-America Corp. that enabled the bank to evaluate how its customer base overlapped with that of Security Pacific Corp. before the merger.

Atlanta-based Phoenix-Hecht is a highly regarded research firm that produces annual reports on the cash management and other commercial and consumer banking market.

Before joining Phoenix-Hecht, Mr. Meckler was a senior vice president at Wachovia Corp.

New Consulting Business

Separately, Larry A. Marks and Denise A. Arnette, former executives of Phoenix Hecht/Gallup, a partnership with Gallup Organization that performs syndicated research on financial products, have left the unit to set up their own consulting business, the Lamda Group.
