Ed Keller to Step Down as Oklahoma Leader of JPMorgan Chase


Davis, KirLee, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Veteran state banker Ed Keller will retire Sept. 15 as the Oklahoma leader of JPMorgan Chase.

Three other Chase veterans - Royce Reed, David Page and Jim Young - will step up to fill roles Keller had maintained.

"Ed's unassuming leadership in Oklahoma has served our clients and our community well over the last decade," said Kris Garrett, regional director of JPMorgan. "He has been a terrific leader in financial services and health care, and he has given generously of his time to support higher education and social services in Oklahoma."

Keller, who the company acknowledged has been the face of JPMorgan Chase in Oklahoma, first entered the banking sector with the First National Bank in Bartlesville in 1964.

The Oklahoma State University graduate later worked in management positions in Blackwell and Claremore before joining the First National Bank and Trust Co. of Oklahoma City. In 1983 he was named chief executive of Fourth National Bank in Tulsa, which later became Bank IV Oklahoma. He joined Liberty Bank and Trust Co. in 1996 as vice chairman, and remained with the lender as it was acquired first by Bank One and then Chase.

"I have enjoyed my years with JPMorgan Chase, and I am confident our clients will continue to benefit from the services we offer them and the strength we bring to Oklahoma," Keller said. "I am proud to leave our Oklahoma team in capable hands of Royce, David and Jim because they are excellent bankers who have a keen understanding of our clients' needs and the local markets."

Keller also serves as director for Saint Francis Health System and is a board member of the Tulsa Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism and a trustee of Oklahoma State University-Tulsa. His alma mater not only honored him with its Distinguished Alumnus Award, but inducted Keller into the university's Hall of Fame.

"Ed has been a terrific banker and leader for our Oklahoma team," said Steve Walker, the commercial banking regional executive for Chase. "He helped us pick this team of outstanding leaders to carry on his great work."

Page and Young will split Keller's market leadership duties. …
