Jim Esposito: new chief operating officer of global investment banking at Goldman Sachs

Yeah, Howard Schiller is retiring, and so Jim is taking his place. I just hope he can fill the big man's shoes.

I have been speaking to Jimmy. This is what he told me: 'Mikey, I'm feeling fucking nervous, man. (I don't blame you, Jimmy. Howard is going to be a tough act to follow.) I know, Mike. We've all heard the stories. The man's a legend. Such an adventurer! The way he dealt with the furry giants in his days of chaos. And you've been there, done it yourself. (I got the T-shirt, mate.) The one with the furry giants on it? (Yeah.) Well, of course. What am I saying?! (Relax, man. You'll be okay.) Thanks, Mike.'

Those furry giants aren't all that anyway.
