Ken Griffin’s investment banking unit, Citadel Securities, has not been synonymous with job security, especially at the very top. But Kevin Turner is never going to be CEO of Microsoft, so what the hell? Sure, he’ll take over the business, rebooted about two years ago after Ken Griffin fired almost everyone five years ago. And when KG starts methodically moving his milk froth from one cup to another, Turner will just walk back to his office and start putting things in boxes.
