New JPMorgan CFO Is A Female Jamie Dimon, Says Person

J.P. Morgan named finance executive Marianne Lake to succeed Douglas Braunstein as chief financial officer of the largest U.S. bank. The appointment makes Ms. Lake one of the most powerful women on Wall Street as the New York company shuffles its leadership and recovers from a massive trading loss. The 43-year-old Ms. Lake currently is chief financial officer for the bank’s consumer unit. J.P. Morgan said that Mr. Braunstein will become a vice chairman of the company following Ms. Lake’s transition to the CFO position in first quarter 2013…Ms. Lake is known within the company as smart and assertive in the style of Mr. Dimon. “She talks so fast because she knows her numbers so well,” said a person close to the bank.  [WSJ]

    No doubt that she'll do well in the job but I always thought Jamie with boobs would somehow look hotter…

    That smile looks a lot like what you make when undergoing a prostate exam. Which does prove that she is a man enough to be the new CFO.
