U.S. Bank has hired Sprint's human resources leader to fill a similar opening.

The $461 billion-asset bank said it has named Ismat Aziz as its new chief human resources officer, replacing Jennie Carlson, who retired from the role earlier this year.

Aziz will direct human resources strategy including talent acquisition and development, performance management, compensation and benefits, employee relations, employee engagement, and diversity and inclusion.

Aziz "is a dynamic, results-oriented leader who excels at attracting and retaining high-performing teams," Andy Cecere, the Minneapolis bank’s president and CEO, said in a press release Wednesday. "Through Ismat's leadership, we will transform and grow our talent and culture strategy to be more competitive, adaptable and well-positioned to lead in today's world."

Before U.S. Bank, Aziz served as the chief human resources officer at Sprint.

"This is an exciting and pivotal time for our company, as we continue to draw strength from a top leadership team that represents diverse backgrounds, thoughts and perspectives,” the bank’s chief administrative officer, Kate Quinn, said in the release.
