Incorporated, at its fourth annual Leadership and Service in Technology Award

in the field of technology, innovation in the development and application of
technology to serve people, and commitment to community service and education.
Appointed Chief Information Officer in 1997, Miller is the first person at J.P.
Morgan to serve in the post and is responsible for designing a technology
strategy that advances the objectives of the firm. In his role as CIO, Miller
serves as chairman of J.P. Morgan’s Information Technology Board, which is the
governing body for technology decisions across the firm and is responsible for
maximizing the firm’s investment in technology. He is also responsible for
leading the firm’s Year 2000 efforts.
Miller was instrumental in planning and building the computer trading technology
at J.P. Morgan’s world headquarters at 60 Wall Street. He also served as head
of Global Securities, Trust & Information Services Support at J.P. Morgan and was
responsible for product development, operations, and systems. In 1996 he assumed
responsibility as sole head of Corporate Technology and was responsible for the
creation of the Pinnacle Alliance, a consortium of five companies – Computer
Sciences Corporation, Andersen Consulting, AT&T Solutions, Bell Atlantic Network
Integration and J. P. Morgan. J.P. Morgan has been a pioneer in partnering with
leading technology firms as a way of complementing and extending its own
capabilities and advancing the strategic objectives of the firm.

technology leader who demonstrates the critical nature of information technology
