Jack Dorsey’s Glorious Beard Goes To Wall Street

Introducing the most significantly bearded CEO on the New York Stock Exchange.

The news today that Twitter CEO Dick Costolo will step down has thrown the spotlight on Jack Dorsey, the Twitter co-founder and chairman who will take over as CEO for the time being.

And on Dorsey's beard.

Until now, the public had seen only glimpses of its full magnificence. There was a selfie, shown above, that Dorsey posted to Twitter.

And there was this shot by Recode's Kara Swisher:

But the beard had stayed mostly behind the scenes.

Beards, by the way, seem to be having a moment in the chilled-out offices of Silicon Valley. The venture capitalist Marc Andreessen has one. So does Twitter co-founder Evan Williams.

But Dorsey, who is also the CEO of the privately held payments company Square, will soon be taking his beard into an entirely new area. The beard, in all its scraggly radiance, will soon adorn the face of a public company's CEO.

Dorsey's beard is going to Wall Street.

Now, some beards — lesser beards — already exist on Wall Street. Lloyd Blankfein, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, has a closely trimmed beard. Larry Ellison of Oracle and Marc Benioff of Salesforce are also known for their beards.
