He left his position as chairman and chief executive officer of The Bank of New York Mellon Corp. in August of 2011.

When speaking at the Reuters Finance Summit in 2007, Kelly said the Bank of New York Mellon Corp.'s lack of substantial credit exposure could make it an attractive core holding for investors.[3]

Kelly was named one of America's top 10 banking CEOs by U.S. Banker magazine in 2006 and 2007 and one of its top 10 CFOs by Institutional Investor magazine in 2004, 2005 and 2006.
