Mike Ashworth, who has served as interim CIO over the past few months, has been named the deputy company CIO and CIO for the company’s consumer and community banking division. Ashworth has held a number of senior leadership positions during his 27-year career at the company.

“We’re also very fortunate that someone with Mike Ashworth’s deep experience across our company will be responsible for delivering technology solutions to our 52 million consumer and small business customers across the United States,” JPMorgan Consumer Businesses CEO Gordon Smith said. “Our customers have come to expect the best solutions from Chase, and Mike will help ensure we deliver on that promise.”
