OneWire ( interviews Sallie Krawcheck, CEO of 85 Broads, in the latest installment to the Open Door video series with Skiddy von Stade. 

Sallie Krawcheck graduated from UNC at Chapel Hill and began working as an investment banker at Salomon Brothers. She obtained her MBA from Columbia Business School and went to work for DLJ immediately after. When she turned 30, Sallie realized she would be much better suited for a job as a research analyst and moved to Sanford C. Bernstein, where she quickly rose to become the Chairman and CEO of sell-side research. In 2002, she joined Citigroup as the CEO and Chairman of Smith Barney, for which she was named "Fortune's Most Influential Person Under the Age of 40." Five years later, she was once again promoted to CEO, this time of Citi's Wealth Management group. In 2009, she was hired by Bank of America after the acquisition of Merrill Lynch to head the Global Wealth Management group, where she led the unit to $3.1 billion in profit. After leaving Bank of America in 2011, Krawcheck has been an advisor to numerous companies and recently bought the women's networking site, 85 Broads in May 2013. During her career, Krawcheck was named by Fortune as one of the "Most Powerful Women" in business for six straight years, one of "Global Business Influentials" by Time Magazine, and the "Business Leader of the Future Award" by CNBC.
