    Question about a man who broke into Corporate America before 30.

    I saw a blurb on CBNC no more than two hours ago about a man who broke into Corporate America before he was 30 years old. They said they might look to him to save America somehow.

    Unfortunately I was unable to see the report. Can anyone tell me who this man is? I would like to find out more about him.

    It's me. I rock!

    Seriously though dude, lots of people break into "Corporate America" right out of college - some before even. Or are you talking about a thief maybe? My point is that your post is not very clear. Maybe if you elaborate a bit more, it will help.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Didn't watch CNBC today but the firt person to come to mind as a major player in corporate America before the age of 30 would be Bill Gates. If they were talking about someone currently under 30 I have no clue.

    Broke into corporate America? How big a success? Didn't watch CNBC today, unlike usual, so I'm not sure who you're referring to.

    That said, I know plenty of people who made their millions in investment banking before age 30, so that's not all that special. My best friend's bonus the other year was $480,000. My cousin's annual bonuses are routinely in that ballpark. (Meanwhile, I'm a grad student on a $30,000 stipend.) To have a major influence on a company that's a household name and make tens of millions, on the other hand, is pretty hard to accomplish by that age. I personally know one person who almost did that. His company's not a household name, but it shook up a well-known industry and provides core services to some companies that are household names.

    Yeah... like USAZorro said, there are craptons of 20somethings with corporate jobs. It's not all that amazing.
    Bring the pain.

    They made a big deal about it because I think they said he was the first to do it. They showed a picture of him and unless I was looking at the wrong guy about one quarter of his hair was white or light gray. I now it is fairly common now, but I do not think it was when this guy did it.

    The one I mentioned who's most successful isn't Asian. And he runs a company that happens to have very few Asians in it despite the company being in an Asian-heavy field. (Not that he has anything against Asians... I consult for his company, which is why I know him.)
