JPMorgan has added fresh faces to its top leadership committee. Here's everything that's been going on inside the biggest US bank.

JPMorgan is the biggest bank in the US and a bellwether for the global financial system. So when it comes to the bank's most senior leaders, and particularly those in position to replace CEO Jamie Dimon, Wall Street pays attention.

Most recently, Dimon sent a firmwide memo in mid-September announcing six new additions to JPMorgan's operating committee.

These include: Marc Badrichani, head of sales and research; Thasunda Brown Duckett, CEO of consumer banking; Takis Georgakopoulos, head of wholesale payments; Teresa Heitsenrether, head of securities services; Carlos Hernandez, executive chair of investment and corporate banking; and Troy Rohrbaugh, head of global markets.

In addition to their current business roles, which will remain unchanged, the new operating committee members will have "have increased responsibility for the company's overall management, including helping to execute the firm's strategy and enhance our strong culture," according to the memo.

Gordon Smith and Daniel Pinto, JPMorgan's co-presidents who report to Dimon and led the bank while he recuperated, will also be taking on additional responsibilities across the business, including chairing new business head forums that "will bring together the heads of our major businesses" to increase industry-wide cooperation.
