JPMorgan Fires Mortgage Chief

You accidentally foreclose on a few people who shouldn’t be getting foreclosed on and all of a sudden it’s like you’re not welcome at the office anymore.

JPMorgan ousted mortgage chief David Lowman after it overcharged active-duty military personnel on loans and improperly foreclosed on other borrowers. “Dave Lowman and I have decided he will leave the firm,” Frank Bisignano, the head of home-lending, said today in an internal employee memo obtained by Bloomberg News.

JPMorgan has been taking steps this year to repair its mortgage unit, which posted at least $3.3 billion in losses during the first quarter. Lowman, 54, who ran home-lending since leaving Citigroup Inc. (C) in 2006, was directed in February to start reporting to Chief Administrative Officer Bisignano, 51. The New York-based bank then hired Cindy Armine, Citigroup’s chief compliance officer, last month to increase oversight as chief control officer of home-lending. “We thank Dave for his five years of service to our firm,” Bisignano said in the memo. “He worked here during extraordinary times and has said he will take some much needed time off.”

    Wait, I thought foreclosure = debt relief = doing people a favor? Should this guy not be getting  a raise?

    He was a thief. He and his former HR rep are well known throughout RFS for expensing personal and fraudulent charges. He and his group were the most confused and inefficient bunch of clowns who would not have gotten jobs at any other major FI’s.  RFS is the most insane and disfunctional group in JPM – JD needs to clean house starting with Scharf who has failed to manage this group effectively.
