(Former Chairman of Citigroup)
Birthday: April 4, 1948 (Aries)
Born In: New York, New York, United States
The number of people who have worn the hats of businessman, political powerbroker, lawyer, and an authoritative voice on policies of the government with as much ease as American corporate icon Richard Parsons is very few. Although it is true that he trained as a lawyer and became famous after faring particularly well in the New York bar exam; he did not pursue a career in law beyond a point and instead decided to work with President Gerald Ford. It was his stint with the President Gerald Ford that provided him a glimpse of the dynamics of the powerful elite in the United States and no doubt shaped the way in which he conducted himself during the rest of his career as one of the corporate czars of the country. He held the top jobs at some of the biggest global corporations in the world and is a respected business leader all across the world. Parsons had a glittering career at the many corporations he worked for and led those giants with distinction during his tenure; however on the other side of the spectrum he has also worked as a key policy maker for US presidents which is why he is regarded as one of the leading lights of corporate America in every way.
