>> By day, David Solomon is the button down number two at Goldman Sachs. By night, he's DJ D-Sol, spinning dance tunes at some of New York's and Miami's hottest clubs. Reuters investments editor Jenn Ablond caught his weekend gig in lower Manhattan. And spent some one on one time with the man who will take the reins from Goldman's CEO, Lloyd Blankfein, when he retires.
And catapult into the company's top spot, where Solomon will be considered one of the most powerful bankers in the world. But as Ablond tells us, fans of DJ D-Sol hope he never gives up his side job.>> He was really great on stage. His track selection was great, I was pretty impressed because I thought that he would just put records together, which he didn't do.
He actually mixed music together. He was dressed up all in black, black cap, black jeans, black shirt. He usually plays electronic dance music. But on Saturday night, he actually opened up with deep house New York house music, and he mixed in the Pink Panther theme song. He brought some equipment with him.
It took him about 15 to 20 minutes to set up the stage. So one of the things also about David Solomon is that he believes that people should actually have lives outside of Wall Street. It goes to show you that you can actually run a huge company like Goldman Sachs and still have some fun on the side.
