The Girls of Wall Street Hits Newstands

by Derek Loosvelt | October 22, 2008

No, Playboy’s special issue hasn’t been released yet, but U.S. Banker’s annual ranking of the 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking has. And for the second year in a row (the ranking only includes employees of commercially-minded banks), this year’s No. 1 was JPMorgan Chase’s Treasury and Securities CEO Heidi Miller, who last night joked in her acceptance speech at New York’s recently revamped Plaza grand ballroom that the banking workplace is a lot different than it was last year, saying, “Some of us even work for the U.S. or U.K. governments now.”

In addition, U.S. Banker released a separate ranking that covers securities firms, among other financial sectors, called the 25 Most Powerful Women in Nonbank Finance, and the No. 1 woman on that list was Credit Suisse’s Nicole Arnaboldi, who heads up the Swiss bank’s alternative investments unit, overseeing $100 billion in assets. Conspicuously absent from this list was 2007’s No. 1. Zoe Cruz, who was famously slashed early this year by none other than Mack the Knife himself, Morgan Stanley’s Chief Executive Officer Johnny Mack.

Speaking of knives, rumor has it they were flying today at Barclays (the Brits that bought Lehman). My condolences, Brothers.
