Presenting: Executive Bitches

For Valentine’s Day this year, Fortune put together a slideshow of various executives, analysts, fund managers, and disgraced AIG CEOs posing with their one true loves– their dogs. For the big names who missed the deadline to submit photos, fear not– this feature is clearly going to become an annual thing. For those already mentally directing a photoshoot of yourself and Jamie the Younger, maybe running down Park Ave or shooting hoops at the Garden, you might first consider looking to this year’s pioneering efforts for inspiration.


For instance, in addition to putting your love for each other on display, why not use the opportunity to showcase your credentials, as “Fortune All-Star Analyst” Mike Mayo does here?


Or, for those who would prefer not to defile their bond with garish self-promotion, something a little more subtle. Show potential investors what they have to look forward to if they invest with you and Jazz. Like a nice little place on the water.


…or perhaps a private island, perfect for alone time, just the two of you.


Or maybe drop the pretense and get personal.


REALLY personal. Say, “Screw it– it’s Valentine’s Day and this is the real me, with my dogs, and we love each other in a way you can’t possibly imagine.** Unashamed and unmuzzled. Bitch on bitch. And if anyone is wearing a dog collar, it’s me.”

An Executive’s Best Friend [Fortune]

**Though if you’ve seen Marley In Me you get the idea.

    The Sperry Top-Siders say, "I'm a prep school kid at heart," being alone with your puppy on a hammock says, "83 was like my biggest summer for pussy."

    Might be NSFW? Yea, and I might have died from natural causes.

    Any word on how choice in dog breed impacted share performance for the ones who were CEOs of public companies?

    If you want to bang a dude that pretends to be a chick so bad just start going to bars in the west village.

    I heard Branson took his dog to a Flea Circus and he stole the show!

    Good news is that the Westminster's TRO against me runs out this year. Bad news, my cut rate insurance does not cover gray market Cialis.

    Seamless segue from the Bloomberg-Gaga picture. Nicely done.

    I know you got burned by the girlfriend in Canada who turned out to be a dude but, FYI, PMCO is a chick.

  20. Posted by FKApmco | February 14, 2012 at 2:12 PM

    Thanks, ILP, I find your wishes comforting in a creepy-stalker-Jesus-I-hope-he-doesn't-know-where-I-live kinda way.

  21. Posted by FKApmco | February 14, 2012 at 2:14 PM

    Bro, for the last time, I am a chick. Bess has confirmed that previously and if Matt would ever post a comment, he would confirm too.

  22. Posted by Guest | February 14, 2012 at 2:16 PM

    Pics of Bess confirming it or it didn't happen.

    yay for bess. what about the rest of us?

    We can expect new things from Whitney (she made a stunning gift to the 1988 Olympics with the ballad "One Moment in Time") but even if we didn't, she would remain the most exciting and orignal black jazz artist of her generation.

    Matt has the pics…does that explain a lot for you?

  28. Posted by VonSloneker | February 14, 2012 at 2:32 PM

    What about…never mind, you're probably right.*

    - Kenny G.

    * I'd quibble with her categorization as a jazz artist. More soul/pop/gospel…stretch to include R&B. Steely Dan has more jazz cred than, rest her soul, Whitney

    A Robert-Chambers-just-held-the-door-for-me way?
