Goldman Sachs Blink

The race for No. 2 is on inside Goldman Sachs.

The New York Post reports that Lloyd Blankfein, CEO of the Wall Street bank, is considering splitting the president and chief operating officer roles in the wake of Gary Cohn’s expected departure for the Trump administration, The Post has learned.

The two top contenders for the position are David Solomon, the bank’s co-head of investment banking, and Harvey Schwartz, the chief financial officer, a bank executive briefed on transition plans told The Post.

The succession plans come as Cohn, 56, is expected to join the Trump administration as the director of the National Economic Council, an influential position that will help craft legislation and economic priorities for the 45th president.
