Karen Peetz, a senior executive overseeing Citigroup Inc's transformation efforts to tackle regulatory consent orders, is retiring, a memo seen by Reuters said.

Peetz, who is the chief administrative officer, will stay until May to help newly appointed Chief Operating Officer Anand Selvakesari in his role, the memo said.

Selvakesari will run the bank's transformation programme, "leading our work to strengthen the quality and timeliness of our data across the bank, and continuing to lead personal banking and wealth management," according to the memo.
