CHICAGO — GE announced Friday that Jamie Miller, CEO of GE Transportation, has been named chief financial officer of GE effective Nov. 1. She will replace Jeffrey S. Bornstein, GE vice chair and chief financial officer, who will leave the company effective Dec. 31, after 28 years of service.

“Jamie’s deep experience in finance, digital technology, and business operations make her the right person for this role as GE continues to transform into a digital industrial company,” said John Flannery, chairman and CEO of GE. “We’ve relied on her leadership to manage the business through a tough cycle, and she has consistently delivered for our customers, shareholders, and employees.”

Miller became president and CEO of GE Transportation in October 2015, and led the business through difficult cycles in both the mining and rail industries. She helped lead GE Transportation’s Brilliant Factory initiative, the business’s digital transformation, and opened markets around the world and revenue opportunities outside the traditional verticals.

“Leading GE Transportation the last few years has been one of the greatest honors in my career,” Miller said. “We developed products and services our customers needed to move goods more efficiently, reliably, and safely in today’s challenging marketplace. The business also opened up exciting commercial opportunities in markets with tremendous growth potential like Egypt, India, and Kazakhstan.”

Miller joined GE in 2008 as vice president, controller, and chief accounting officer after 18 years of experience outside the company at Anthem Inc., and as a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP. Her roles included managing investor relations, controllership, financial planning and analysis, tax, and financial systems. Following her role as controller, Jamie went on to become GE’s chief information officer, where she led the company’s global information technology strategy, services and operations, and delivered transformational technology such as Brilliant Factory.

A new CEO of GE Transportation will be named in the coming weeks. In the interim, Pascal Schweitzer, GE Transportation’s global services leader, will serve as acting CEO.
