Remember Zoe Cruz, the once possible successor to Morgan Stanley's CEO Johnny Mack until Mack reminded us why they call him "the Knife," sacking Cruz to save his own backside when the credit crunch started to hit the fan in 2007?

Cruz is reportedly still hiring, both here and in Asia, for her fund, which is expected to launch with about $200 million in the bank.
