American International Group, the largest commercial insurer in the U.S. and Canada, named Michael Lewis chief digital officer as the company turns to technology to simplify operations and gain an edge against smaller rivals.
Bloomberg News reports that Lewis, 51, joins from JPMorgan, where he was most recently global chief technology officer for digital at the consumer businesses, the insurer said Thursday in a statement. He will report to Chief Information Officer Philip Fasano and replaces Rahul Samant who left to become chief information officer of Delta Air Lines.
In the meantime, Bloomberg News also reports that Deutsche Bank said Jeff Urwin will assume management board responsibility for the company’s business in the Americas as it works to comply with stricter regulatory scrutiny in the U.S.
Urwin, who is based in New York, is taking on the role in addition to his position as head of corporate and investment banking, Deutsche Bank Chief Executive Officer John Cryan said in a note to staff published on the company’s website on Friday.
