Hailed “The Oracle of Wall Street” by Bloomberg, Ms. Whitney has been ahead of the curve during America’s largest credit crisis since the Great Depression. Her rise to international prominence was triggered in October 2007 when she made one of the most controversial and highly publicized calls in Wall Street history. She was named one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People of 2009 by TIME Magazine and one of Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business for the past four years.
