The article presents information on the chief technology executive of Bank of America Corp. (BofA). Barbara Desoer's shift from head of Bank of America's giant consumer products group to the post of chief technology, service and fulfillment executive took everyone in the industry but Desoer by surprise. The newly created job, she says, is a lateral move she could have vetoed if so inclined. Desoer has made a habit of taking on new challenges. She joined the old BofA in 1977. After climbing the commercial lending ladder, she jumped to the consumer side. By most accounts, her willingness to learn new things has made Desoer one of the power players in banking.
