Please identify which well-known financier the following passage is about, from the latest issue of Vanity Fair.

"One of the rules at the gym was you don't drop your weights-- they can get damaged," recalls Tim Gardner, an assistant manager at Total Fitness, "but I can still see him sitting on the bench, doing curls, and then standing up and dropping these weights from as far up as he could do. And people would turn and look at him. It was just for the attention, see? He loved to be in the limelight like that. I think if you looked up 'narcissist' in the dictionary, you'd find [this person]'s picture."
"I'll never forget the first time I met [this person]," says Gary Findley, who managed the gym for a time. "I was inside the gym, and I heard this loud noise outside. I mean, loud. I couldn't figure out what it was, so I walked outside. He was landing in the middle of our running track in a private helicopter."
