TROY — Flagstar Bank has hired Jennifer Charters as executive vice president and CIO, with responsibility for the strategic direction of the bank’s IT organization, including the successful delivery of technology initiatives and management of IT operations.
Previously, she was CIO of corporate technology at Ally Financial in Detroit, where she was responsible for internal technology systems.
She has 24 years of experience in information technology, including 12 years consulting at Accenture, where she led strategic projects in support of Fortune 500 companies in the financial services and telecommunications industries.
