BlackRock founder said to eye US Treasury Secretary post

Hillary Clinton

Larry Fink has achieved much during his long career on Wall Street, including creating almost from scratch what is the largest and arguably the most successful money management firm in the world of finance, BlackRock.

Fox Business reports that people who know him say that for all that he has accomplished, Fink believes his career is incomplete unless he achieves the one goal that has eluded him for years - a presidential appointment to become U.S. Treasury Secretary.

People close to Fink, one of Wall Street’s most prominent Democrats, say that he’s now hoping his next chance to become Treasury Secretary is if Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton wins the presidency in 2016.

One major sign that he’s angling for the job, they say, is his October 2013 appointment of Democratic political operative and Hillary Clinton confidant Cheryl Mills to the BlackRock board of directors.
