JPMorgan Ousts Mortgage Chief Lowman
JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), the second- largest U.S. bank, ousted mortgage chief David Lowman after it overcharged active-duty military personnel on loans and improperly foreclosed on other borrowers.
“Dave Lowman and I have decided he will leave the firm,” Frank Bisignano, the head of home-lending, said today in an internal employee memo obtained by Bloomberg News.
JPMorgan has been taking steps this year to repair its mortgage unit, which posted at least $3.3 billion in losses during the first quarter. Lowman, 54, who ran home-lending since leaving Citigroup Inc. (C) in 2006, was directed in February to start reporting to Chief Administrative Officer Bisignano, 51. The New York-based bank then hired Cindy Armine, Citigroup’s chief compliance officer, last month to increase oversight as chief control officer of home-lending.
