JPMorgan names former United CEO as Midwest leader

JPMorgan Chase is naming former United Airlines CEO Glenn Tilton as chairman of its Midwest business and a member of its executive committee.

In this role, Tilton will help recruit, oversee the firm's regional charitable budget, coordinate regional government and public affairs initiatives and maintain relationships with elected officials.

Tilton retired from the top spot at United Airlines parent UAL Corp. last October after its combination with Continental. He currently serves as chairman. He's also a director on the boards of Abbott Laboratories, Corning Inc. and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Last year he was named by President Obama to the President's Export Council.

Before his time at United, Tilton spent 32 years with Texaco.

JPMorgan has headquarters in New York. UAL is based in Chicago.
