Citi Private Bank has hired JPMorgan Chase executive Michael Sak to serve as vice president and law firm group private banker in Chicago.

Sak most recently was a vice president in the private wealth management group at JPMorgan. Prior to that, he served in the firm’s infrastructure and operations group after joining JPMorgan in 2001.

In his new role, Sak reports to Kerry L. Gibson, the regional market manager for the group’s Western region.

The new hire is part of Citi Private Bank’s commitment to serving the legal market in Chicago, Naz Vahid, head of Citi Private Bank’s law firm group, said in a statement.

“The legal industry is an exciting, evolving industry, and Citi Private Bank has the experience and the balance sheet to help firms in Chicago advance their business and meet their objectives,” Vahid said.
