After leaving Citigroup in 2008, the plainspoken South Carolina native was out of work for several months. She joined Bank of America in 2009 but was passed over for the top job. Still, the consolation prize is hardly sympathy-inducing: She was appointed the head of Bank of America’s wealth management business late last year. Krawcheck oversaw one of the few growth areas in the world of finance. The acquisition of Merrill Lynch in early 2009 resulted in Krawcheck helming a division with 15,000 financial advisors and $1.9 trillion in client assets. Sallie became the CEO and Co-Founder of Ellevest in September 2015. She currently has a net worth of $17.2 billion.
