Hai is the chief technology officer for enterprise systems within JPMorgan Chase.

These applications support all lines of businesses within the firm, including retail, card services, treasury and security services, commercial bank, private bank, private client services and investment bank.

Prior to joining JPMorgan Chase, Hai was the head of development for National City Corp. In that role, he built credibility and trust with line-of-business executives following a long period of neglect and mismanagement. The renewed credibility resulted in increased technology investment successively by 50 percent for 1999-2001. Through implementing strong project management methods and cultural changes, Hai reduced the average duration of technology projects by 50 percent, resulting in increased return on investment by 40 percent.
