Stephen Schwarzman Would Sooner Eat Imitation Crab Meat Than Retire But If He Does, One Of These People Might Take Over

When Blackstone Group LP named a new global head of private equity last month, Chief Executive Stephen Schwarzman was looking for more than just a business unit chief. Even though the buyout king has no plans to retire, the appointment of Joe Baratta, a 41-year-old dealmaker credited with building up the firm’s European buyouts practice, was the latest step in a wider succession plan, Blackstone insiders said. Baratta joins five other senior Blackstone executives from whose ranks the successor to Schwarzman, 65, will eventually emerge, the sources said. The others are Jonathan Gray, 42, real estate chief; Bennett Goodman, 54, co-founder of the credit business; Tom Hill, 63, who runs the hedge fund team; Laurence Tosi, 44, the chief financial officer; and Joan Solotar, 47, who spearheads investor relations, the sources said. […] “Steve will never retire; he will die at his desk,” one senior Blackstone executive said. [Reuters]

    Schwarzman, 65, has the body of a much younger man and is known as King Stevo.

    Ah, few things in life are as entaetrining as mangled lyrics. One evening as the Isley Brothers blasted into what was then an already nearly 20 year old It’s your Thing from 1969, our eldest jumped to her feet, grabbed herself Michael Jackson style and loudly sang Itch you thing, do what you want to do . She is still just as entaetrining 25+ years later.

  42. Hello.This post was extremely interesting, particularly because I was looking for thoughts on this topic last Saturday.

  45. Great blog. So many blogs like this cover subjects that can’t be found in print. I don’t know how we got on 15 years ago with just print media.

  46. wow gold says:

    Marvelous, what a blog it is! This blog gives helpful information to us, keep it up.

  47. the topic that you've tackle here in this blog is really interesting I've found lots of blog but so far this is the nicest that I ever read, thanks men for sharing this.

  48. I love reading biographies and business books, and coming across your page is an additional idea for me in writing my blogs.
