JP Morgan’s ‘Mr. Fix-it’ is the latest departure

Published:
Another high-ranking executive at JPMorgan Chase is departing, one who had been considered a possible successor to CEO Jamie Dimon.
Michael Cavanagh, who was co-CEO of the company’s corporate and investment bank, is joining The Carlyle Group to become co-president and co-chief operating officer.
“While we would prefer he stay at the firm, we are glad he’s going to a valued client in Carlyle,” Dimon said Tuesday in a news release.
Cavanagh, 48, joined the global bank in 2004 and helped guide it through the financial crises that washed over Wall Street several years later. He came to be known as Dimon’s “Mr. Fix-it.” He said in a prepared statement from the bank that “it was not without a lot of soul-searching that I decided it was time for me to take my career in a different direction.”
Now he has joined the ranks of several top executives who have departed from JPMorgan in recent years. They have included Charlie Scharf, who in 2011 left to run JPMorgan’s private equity arm Equity Partners, and who is now CEO of Visa. Heidi Miller left at the same time after running the company’s international operations.
Jes Staley was another executive widely seen as a possible future JPMorgan CEO before leaving last year, after more than 30 years at the company, for BlueMountian Capital. And in April 2013, co-chief operating officer Frank Bisignano left to become CEO of payment processor First Data.
JPMorgan’s executive bench was also thinned by the 2012 departure of Ina Drew. Drew, who had been chief investment officer, left within days of the disclosure of what turned out to be a $6 billion trading loss.
Cavanagh’s departure leaves Daniel Pinto as sole CEO of JPMorgan’s corporate and investment bank.
