March 12, 2018

Goldman Sachs Group will likely name DJ D-Sol, professionally known as David Solomon, as its new CEO, the New York Times reports. D-Sol currently serves as the co-president of the company, but will likely be chosen following the announcement that Harvey M. Schwartz, a black belt in karate who serves as the other half of Goldman Sachs's presidential team, is retiring.

The New York Times first reported on the the double life of D-Sol in 2017, when the EDM DJ was just starting out, making rounds in New York, the Bahamas, and Miami. He's since found even more success, getting airtime on Sirius XM with his remix of Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop Believing," making appearances at the EMA Awards, and even playing an exclusive party at New York City's Fashion Week. He also gained a huge financial leg-up from Donald Trump's sweeping tax reform bill, because of his supplemental work at Goldman Sachs.

“David’s always believed that having a wide range of outside interests leads to a balanced life and makes for a better career,” Jake Siewert, a Goldman spokesman, told the Times. “He’s preached that regularly to younger employees in the firm and tries to lead by example.”
