Sallie Krawcheck

Sallie Krawcheck With a reputation for integrity, creativity, independence of thought, a sense of humor, and an unrelenting focus on results, Sallie Krawcheck has built a career that has reached the top levels of success across a range of functions: as a senior corporate executive, as a research analyst, and now as an entrepreneur. Recently named number 9 on Fast Company's list of the 100 Most Creative People 2014, she has also been referred to as one of the most successful and influential executives in financial services. From turning around and growing troubled wealth management businesses to eliminating Wall Street conflicts of interest and advocating a true client-centered business model, Fortune called her "The Last Honest Analyst" during her tenure at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. She spent years as the guardian of such brands as Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch, and U.S. Trust.

Krawcheck has often noted that "investing in women is simply smart business" and expresses this view through her ownership in the Ellevate companies. The Ellevate network (formerly 85 Broads) is a 34,000-strong (and growing) global professional woman's network, the most expansive and diverse of its kind.

Krawcheck's embrace of social media as a means of including more people in her frank business conversations on women and business, regulatory reform, and investor protection has garnered her more than 500,000 followers as a LinkedIn Influencer and more than 22,000 followers on Twitter.

A Tar Heel fan through and through, Krawcheck also spends her time advising startup companies, focusing on education-oriented philanthropy and serving on a variety of boards.
