JPMorgan Bournemouth - 'Global Command Centre'

Jamie Dimon

Jamie Dimon cradles a cup of coffee as he waits for one of his 250,000 employees to open the locked door of an office marked 'Global Command Centre'.

Bloomberg News reports that once inside, the 58-year-old chief executive officer of JPMorgan joins about 20 people facing computers and wearing headsets. On a wall hang four flat screens displaying a map of the world, a list of top clients and data on global money flows.

'We’re tracking the movement of trillions of dollars here', says Dimon, pointing to one of the screens during a daylong visit this month. 'From this room, we can actually pinpoint and deal with issues that come up around the world'.

Is he in New York? Tokyo? London? Try Bournemouth, a British seaside resort 108 miles south of the U.K. capital and 3,400 miles by overnight flight from Dimon’s Manhattan office. JPMorgan has more than 4,000 staff here, making it the area’s biggest employer. The bank is spending $48m to modernize the site.
