Meet The Candidates: Who Will Gorman Pick As Morgan Stanley’s Next #2?
5:47 pm, June 30th | by Hillary Reinsberg
Sometime next year, Morgan Stanley will get a bit of a shake up. The current Chairman, tough guy John Mack, will step down and hand over the reins to the current CEO and President, James Gorman. At Morgan Stanley, the President is usually a good sign of who’s number two – and on track to be number one. Dealbook had some fun today figuring out which Morgan insiders might take get the job.
The only problem: this may be a years-long guessing game (at least we’ll have a way to keep busy). Insiders say Gorman will likely keep us waiting for quite some time before appointing a President, settling into his job for at least a few quarters before he chooses a favorite.
Although we hate to wait, we’re sure the internal rat race will be one to watch. So let’s take a look at the guys who may be in contention for this thing – or at least, the guys who will be sucking up to their new boss!
