BankUnited (BKU) in Miami Lakes, Fla., has promoted Mark Bagnoli to become its chief risk officer.

Bagnoli succeeds Randy Melby, who stepped down from his post on Monday, BankUnited said in a regulatory filing.

Bagnoli most recently served as Bank United's chief auditor. Before joining the $14 billion-asset company in 2009, he was chief risk officer at the Federal Home Loan Bank in Chicago. He also worked for more than 20 years at JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and predecessor Bank One, eventually serving as senior vice president of corporate audit.

The veteran banke's "thorough knowledge of our company combined with his extensive experience with enterprise risk management and regulatory compliance makes him the ideal addition to our leadership team as we continue to grow," BankUnited Chairman, President and Chief Executive John Kanas said in a press release.

BankUnited hired a new chief compliance officer, Marie Blake, in September.
