Bank One Corp. named James E. Annable director of economics and appointed Diane C. Swonk, who had been deputy chief economist, to succeed him as chief economist.

Mr. Annable, 56, will head Bank One's economics committee, which will include executives from commercial banking, investment management and risk management. He also has been named as chief economist of WingspanBank.com, Bank One's Internet-only bank, which was launched last month.

Along with her increased responsibility of managing the Corporate Economics Group, Ms. Swonk, 37, will continue in her role as principal spokesperson for the bank on economic issues.

Mr. Annable and Ms. Swonk were at First Chicago Corp., which the former Banc One Corp. acquired last year. They joined the bank in 1981 and 1985 respectively.
