<p>So much for that Lloyd Blankfein tweet...</p>

<p>In an announcement that effectively confirms a Wall Street Journal story from last week, Goldman Sachs named David Solomon, currently a co-president of the investment bank, as next in line to replace CEO Lloyd Blankfein.</p>

<p>He will also take over sole responsibility as the bank's president. His former co-president Harvey Schwartz will retire.</p>

<p>The <a href="">WSJ reported</a> on Friday that Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein was preparing to step down as Goldman Sachs chief executive as soon as the end of the year, ending his 12-year-plus run at the helm of the world's most influential investment bank, which, under his leadership, earned the affectionate sobriquet "the Vampire Squid".</p>

<p>Goldman shares initially kneejerked lower on the news, before turning higher, helping to carry the Dow higher.</p>

<p>Blankfein said during a television interview last year that he wanted to leave Goldman "stronger than it was when I found it," though he did initially appear hostile to the idea, as we pointed out above.</p>
