JPMorgan Chase & Co said it has appointed Tim Berry as its head of government relations.

The investment bank said the appointment of Tim Berry is coming as Nate Gatten, who left in May after nearly nine years at the bank to become head of government relations for American Airlines.

Mr. Berry’s significant private and public sector experience includes serving as the Chief of Staff to two Majority Leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives, managing large teams and developing policy and legislative agendas.  In the private sector, he was the Vice President for Government Relations at Time Warner and most recently Executive Vice President of Axios, a new media company.

“Tim is a proven advocate for informed public policy,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase.  “As a company, we have a responsibility to engage and collaborate around solutions that promote economic growth and opportunity for the people in the communities where we do business,” Dimon added.

“Tim will lead a talented and experienced government relations team already in place at JPMorgan Chase. He has a long history of bipartisanship and a proven ability to navigate challenging political and legislative landscapes to deliver results,” added Peter Scher, Head of Corporate Responsibility and Chairman of the Washington, D.C. Region.

“This is an opportunity that only comes around once in a lifetime.  I’m honored to join JPMorgan Chase and its exceptional team to make a positive difference for the company, our customers and our communities,” said Tim Berry.

Mr. Berry will report directly to Peter Scher and will be located in Washington, D.C.   He will begin his employment with JPMorgan Chase in early September.
