About Me
Serving as director of Mount Sinai Hospital’s pioneering Brain Donor Center for the past 23 years, Seton Melvin guides the study of brains that have been subject to injuries that are clinically documented. Seton Melvin’s background includes responsibilities with Chemical Bank in the commercial lending sphere extending to the 1980s.

Ms. Melvin subsequently accepted a position with Mitsubishi Bank as vice president and oversaw the Japanese company’s US Construction Finance Department. Part of a major international operation, she took part in the origination of loans totaling $2 billion within a two-year period.

Ms. Melvin has a strong presence in her local community and is a contributor to the Fund for Park Avenue. This nonprofit focuses on beautification initiatives involving lighting and landscaping across the Park Avenue malls. She is also active with the Metropolitan Museum of Art Directors Group and previously directed the Young Collectors Council of the Guggenheim Museum.

An avid traveler, Seton Melvin has had the chance to experience adventures such exploring the untamed rivers of Borneo and navigating the Drake Passage during a gale on the way to Antarctica.
