This actually happened last month, but whatever.
Boston: If any of you have your life savings stashed in a Fidelity Mutual Fund, take comfort, because you’re money is safe with those guys! The CEO, Edward “Ned” Johnson III, who’s been running the shop for 35 years, and who is the son of the founder, Edward Johnson II, just tapped as President… his daughter, Abigail Johnson! So you KNOW they have a really rigorous, merit-based method for promotions and succession planning! Here’s a gem from one of Fidelity’s (former) top dogs, and I’m not making this up:
“I had a top job at Fidelity, but not the top job,” [he] said. “And when I asked my parents, they wouldn’t let me change my name to Johnson.”
Bonus nep: Do you know who this is below? Well it’s Bono’s daughter who’s “quietly” making a name for herself in the acting game. From some f-ing website: “Eve Hewson, who’s been building an acting career in an understated, non-splashy fashion.”
“Understated?!” Here’s the first – THE FIRST – thing on her page on IMDB: “Daughter of Bono.” ayfkm?
