Jamie Dimon Loves The Thrill Of Running A Large Corporation That Faces Daily Threats Of Multi-Billion Dollar Fines, And He’s Excited About The Prospect Of Doing It Somewhere Else Some DayBy Bess Levin
Jamie Dimon has no plans to head up another major bank after being the chairman and CEO of J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. That’s what Dimon told the audience at the Financial Women’s Association event last Tuesday during a “fireside” chat, when asked about his future, according to sources at the event. The CEO was casual, relaxed and jocular at the off-the-record event that drew approximately 300 people to J.P. Morgan’s 50th floor offices on Park Avenue in Manhattan. Dimon responded to a question from the audience asking him what was next for the CEO. He said he loved the company he worked for and loved his job but didn’t see himself tackling another big job after being head of the biggest U.S. bank by assets…The chairman and CEO told the audience he intends to remain active and possibly serve on corporate boards, as he doesn’t currently serve on any and would also be interested in serving on one or two non-profits where he could make an impact.
