MATTHEW ZAMES JPMorgan Chase COO Matthew Zames will be stepping down from his role after 13 years, the bank announced last month. Zames, 46, had a crucial role in guiding the bank during the financial crisis and is credited with raising suspicion over Bernie Madoff a year before his eventual arrest. Zames has long been assumed as a potential successor to Jamie Dimon, and the news of his stepping down has led to much speculation about who else may be in the running. According to a report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Zames' responsibilities will be split between Marianne Lake, CFO; Daniel Pinto, CEO of Corporate & Investment Banking; Gordon Smith, CEO of Consumer & Community Banking, Mary Erdoes, CEO of Asset Management; and Doug Petno, CEO of the Commercial Bank.

He earned his M.S. in Management from Purdue University concurrently with an MBA from Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Rouen and a B.S. from the University of Washington. The NMSA is a nonpartisan organization driven by top-level executive representation from the nation's leading mortgage servicing organizations for the purpose of effecting progress and change on the key challenges that face the mortgage servicing industry. By Who's moving on and who's moving up in the industry This month, some of the industry's largest companies saw significant changes to their corporate lineups. Know someone moving up in the industry? email us at "I have been in this business almost 25 years. I spent the vast majority of my time running businesses, driving things forward, facing off against clients, taking business risk. But at its core, look: I'll be 47 in October. I want to get back to running the railroad—running my railroad, running my business. So it's just a natural point." —Matthew Zames, Former COO, JPMorgan Chase
