JP Morgan's CFO Marianne Lake will now serve as the new chief executive of the firm's consumer lending and card services businesses, while Jennifer Piepszak — currently CEO of Chase Card Services — will step in as CFO, effective May 1.
Between the lines: Per an internal memo, Lake will " be heading a major group of businesses that is core to how [JP Morgan] serve[s] millions of Chase customers." Lake — who has been seen as a possible successor to CEO Jamie Dimon — has "more direct experience in running a business unit within J.P. Morgan," as CNBC points out.
