An article about Jamie Dimon just came out in the New York Times that says now everyone’s treating the JPMorgan CEO like Madonna.“He is now commonly referred to by a single name, like Pelé or Madonna.”
We doubt anyone normal would know who we were talking about if we just randomly referred to a “Jamie,” so we asked a JPMorgan-er inside the bank if it was true.
He eagerly confirmed with us:
It’s just “Jamie. Definitely.”
He’s “a charismatic leader who charms congressmen and credit traders alike.”
Everyone loves Jamie:
“Right now, there are virtually no giants on Wall Street except maybe Jamie,” said David M. Rubenstein, a founder of the Carlyle Group.
He really is like the Madonna of banking.
