JPMorgan Chase has named retired Army Gen. Raymond Odierno senior adviser to the company on international relations, cybersecurity, leadership development and other issues.

The 60-year-old Odierno, a former Army chief of staff and commanding general of U.S. forces in the Iraq war, starts at JPMorgan on Sept. 1. Odierno retired from the Army this month.

"His experience, vision and impressive track record of success when confronting overwhelming challenges will provide significant value" to JPMorgan, Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said in a news release Thursday.

Odierno and Dimon were not available for comment. 

JPMorgan was one of five banks that reached a $25 billion settlement in 2012 over improperly foreclosing on members of the military. Before that settlement was announced, JPMorgan started making changes to how it handled loans and servicing to military members.

More recently, JPMorgan was victimized by a massive data breach last year, in which hackers the names and other personal information from 76 million households and seven million small-business customers. It's also being investigated for violating foreign bribery laws by offering jobs to friends and family of China's ruling elite.

Odierno will advise JPMorgan "on a broad range of issues including international planning and country risk analysis, technology, operations and the rapidly evolving issues of physical and cybersecurity." Odierno will also help structure JPMorgan's leadership development program.
