GE Names Jamie Miller Senior Vice President And Chief Information Officer

GE today announced that Jamie Miller has been named senior vice president and chief information officer (CIO). In this role, Miller will lead the information technology teams across the company to further leverage technology to enable speed, growth and profitability.

Miller, 44, will report to Jeff Immelt, GE chairman and CEO. She will be based at GE global headquarters in Fairfield, CT.

“As a company doing business in nearly 160 countries, we have seen the growing strategic importance of information technology in enabling efficient operations and business processes,” said Immelt. “Jamie is the right person to lead this effort. She has a strong track record of building and developing high performing teams, delivering innovative business solutions, and partnering with global leaders in executing large scale transformational projects."

Miller previously was vice president, controller and chief accounting officer for GE, where she led a globally distributed GE controllership team comprised of about 3,500 accountants. Prior to joining GE in 2008, she served as the senior vice president, chief accounting officer and controller of WellPoint, Inc. She was also a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, where she served in a number of roles including Financial Services leader for the Chicago practice. Miller also served as vice president, corporate controller and chief accounting officer at Genworth Financial (formerly GE Financial Assurance).

Miller graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, in 1990 with a B.S. degree in Accountancy. She is a Certified Public Accountant and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

In the CIO role, Miller succeeds Charlene Begley, who has taken a leave of absence for personal health reasons.

Jan Hauser, partner in the Accounting Consulting Services department of the PricewaterhouseCoopers National Professional Services Group, will succeed Miller as vice president, controller and chief accounting officer for GE. She is a respected presence in the accounting community, having served as an SEC fellow, and playing strategic roles with key standard-setting bodies.
