JPMorgan Hires Ex-Senator Martinez

JPMorgan Hires Ex-Senator Martinez; The New York Times

JPMorgan Chase said on Monday that it has hired Mel Martinez, the former senator and secretary of housing and urban development, as a senior executive for the Florida, Caribbean and Central America region.

Mr. Martinez, a Republican who served in the Bush administration cabinet from 2001 to 2003 and as senator from 2004 to 2009, was most recently working as a lawyer in the Orlando office of the law firm, DLA Piper.

He will become a member of JPMorgan’s executive committee and work as a senior adviser to the firm’s clients in the region, including corporations, nonprofit organizations and governments.

Comment: It should be interesting in a year from now to see the sweet deal Chris Dodd gets on Wall Street and compare it with one Martinez got.
