Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan confirmed the changes Wednesday evening.

"The quarterly results we announced last week showed once again how far we have come on our journey over the past few years," Moynihan said. "The changes we are announcing reflect decisions two senior leaders have made about their own futures, and some other changes that will bolster, and in some cases, reposition members of the management team."

Vice Chairman David Darnell will also leave the firm, retiring from the bank after more than 35 years.

BofA also promoted Global Human Resources Executive Andrea Smith to a newly created position, chief administrative officer.
