POSITION: CEO, president and chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co.

OTHER: Served two three-year terms on the board of directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

AGE: 57

ON BANKING REGULATIONS: I wish there was more rational conversation. What went wrong? Why did it go wrong? What should we do about it? You know, JPMorgan didn't need TARP. JPMorgan didn't rely on Fed financing. JPMorgan stood up for all its clients in the downturn. We were there where other weren't. We tried to do our part. Does that mean we never made mistakes? No. But now it's just regulatory, political, legal backlash from the crisis, which I understand. But it's a little indiscriminate.
