Did you know that Vanguard
] CEO Bill McNabb
sent his chief investment oficer, Gus Sauter
, back from Washington, D.C. to Vanguard headquarters in a red Mustang on the day Lehman Brothers went bankrupt? That's just one of the tidbits USA Today
's Sandra Block includes
in a profile of the Vanguard chief.
In addition to the tale of the Mustang -- it was what the rental place had available -- and other snippets on Vanguard's reaction to the financial crisis (which started up just weeks after McNabb took over as CEO), USA Today also delves into McNabb's history: earning his bachelor's degree at and rowing for Darmouth, teaching Latin at a boys' private school, earning his MBA at the Wharton School at UPenn, and working in the global banking and M&A side of Chase Manhattan, before joining Vanguard 24 years ago.
