Holy cow, the CEO of Goldman Sachs is only 5'4! Even though most CEOs are above 6', he made it!

There are quite a few short CEOs. I bet if they went around and did a poll of small business owners, you'd probably get a lot more short men (and women). I like to think that a lot of shoter guys go out on their own and become self-made men (e.g. Bloomberg).

Interesting that he's the same height as me. I wish I was able to ask him how height affected his career if at all.

Does this make anyone think the Anne Case paper is valid?

I think a lot of this has to do with Heightism. I woman I was once involved with told me that she noticed most small business owners are short. I cannot confirm this, but perhaps understanding that the social hierarchy of large corporations mirrors society a bit, I wouldn't be surprised if her observation was true.

Theres always the study that showed that income was not correlated to height for independent business owners, but was for employees.

I wonder about that quite a bit.

As you can see, the theories are numerous.

I find that to be a private question, sorry.
