Morgan Stanley sets up potential successors to CEO James Gorman

May 21, 2021: -Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman promoted a quartet of executives on Thursday, setting up a race to succeed him atop one of Wall Street’s premier investment banks.

According to a company statement, the firm named Ted Pick, 52 runs the Wall Street trading and advisory division, and wealth management head Andy Saperstein, 54, as co-presidents starting next month.

Chief Financial Officer Jon Pruzan, 52, was made a chief operating officer, and investment management head Dan Simkowitz, 56, was named co-head of strategy with Pick.

The changes at New York-based Morgan Stanley, a powerhouse in Wall Street trading and investment banking and wealth management, come days after JPMorgan Chase promoted two executives to run its massive retail bank, setting up potential successors to CEO Jamie Dimon.

“The management appointments announced today reflect the next generation of leadership at Morgan Stanley,” Gorman, 62, said in the statement. “Ted Pick and Andy Saperstein lead our two largest businesses and have both played critical roles in our success; they are proven, leaders and managers.”

In an interview, Gorman said he was “highly confident” that one of his deputies would be CEO eventually, according to Bloomberg, which reported on the overhaul earlier. According to the report, Gorman told his board he intends to serve as CEO for at least another three years.

Investor relations head Sharon Yeshaya will be promoted to CFO to replace Pruzan, the bank said.
