Goodbye Kindler; Hello Elliot and Skattum

According to Dealbook, it takes two people to replace ex-M&A head Rob Kindler at JPMorgan. (Specifically, it takes Jimmy Elliot and Dag Skattum.) We know it’s painful for you JPMorgan people**, so we’ve decided to commemorate the passing of the Kindler era with a very special t-shirt:
This is why God made
** The ones of you who aren’t blocked from reading DealBreaker, that is.

DealBook reports that JPMorgan’s Rob Kindler is moving to Morgan Stanley to be Vice Chairman of Investment Banking where he’ll focus on client relationships, etc., etc.
The JPMorgan motto (er, “strategic principle”) is, of course, “One Firm. One Team. Be a Leader.”
Kindler’s version, we’re told, inscribed on a hat he kept in the office: “One Firm. One Team. Bribe a Leader.” He will certainly be missed.
