Kelly McNamara Corley has been appointed senior vice president and general counsel of Discover Financial Services.

Ms. Corley, a 17-year veteran of the parent organization, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., succeeded Harvey Bock, who retired last year. Mr. Bock played a major role in the card company's legal battle with Visa U.S.A. in the mid-1990s, when Discover sought to issue Visa cards through a bank it owned. Discover ultimately lost its bid when the Supreme Court refused to hear its appeal.
