The JP Morgan C.E.O. is arguably the most powerful man in banking, and one of two (along with Goldman’s Lloyd Blankfein) left standing at the helm of a mega-bank after the 2007-2009 meltdown. Still, with all Dimon’s stature, political skills and connections, not even he could stave off regulatory reform for the financial industry. He has become a vocal and high-profile critic of the Dodd-Frank act for financial reform, saying it’s “ill-conceived” and “doesn’t reduce risk at all,” and relations between him and Washington, D.C., are said to have cooled slightly. Not Surprisingly, Dimon was named to Time Magazine’s 2006, 2008 and 2009 lists of the world’s 100 most influential people. Dimon was born and raised in New York City and attended the Browning School and majored in psychology and economics at Tufts University before getting his M.B.A degree from Harvard Business School. Dimon is married to Judith Kent with whom he has three children.
