Last week, Charlie Gasparino reported that he'd spoken to a bunch of Lloyd Blankfein's 'friends,' who'd told him that Blankfein a) hates his job running Goldman Sachs and b) has been saying he's going to leave the firm by the end of the year. Goldman denied the report, promising Lloyd will be with us for years to come. False!, Chaz claimed and today provides names of two executives who will potentially take over for Lloyd at some point in the future.
They are vice-chairmen Michael Evans or Michael Sherwood, the latter of which will succeed the firm’s Gary Cohn as chairman of the partnership committee, it was announced in a memo yesterday. All of this, CG says, is proof his story is more spot on than Goldman would have you believe, and proof that he is all-knowing. Speaking of which, CG asked his Fox Business colleagues, "What, is Lucas van Praag clairvoyant? How does he know I haven't spoken to Lloyd's friends, who've told me he's leaving?" (CEO's up and down Wall Street also backed him up, Chaz says.)
