JPMorgan Chase has promoted its top cyber security executive to lead technology for its retail banking division, Business Insider has learned.
Rohan Amin was named chief information officer of consumer and community banking (CCB) at JPMorgan Chase in recent months, according to an internal memo seen by Business Insider. Amin had previously served as the global chief information security officer and chief technology controls officer.
In his new role, he’ll oversee the technology for a client base of over 61 million households and four million small businesses managed by 135,000 employees. The move indicates the increasing focus and importance banks have put on cyber security in recent years, particularly when it comes to handling Main Street money.
Amin reports to Gordon Smith, JPMorgan Chase’s co-president and chief operating officer and CEO of CCB, and Lori Beer, the bank’s global chief information office.
Amin moves to the retail side of the bank after serving as its global chief information security officer for the past four years, overseeing cyber across all the banks businesses. Prior to joining JPMorgan in 2014, Rohan was at aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin, where he served as the director of global cyber and security solutions.
Jason Witty, who recently served as US Bancorp’s CISO, has filled the role of global CISO left open by Amin’s promotion, according to a second internal memo seen by Business Insider. Witty is also JPMorgan’s head of cybersecurity and technology controls, and reports to Beer.
Amin filled the role previously held by Saul Van Beurden, who left the bank in early January to join Wells Fargo, where was named head of technology.
