John Reed is one of the pre-eminent executives in the business world, having held the top spots at both Citigroup and the New York Stock Exchange.  He received joint SB and BA degrees from MIT and Washington & Jefferson College before serving for two years as an officer in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Reed earned his master's degree in management from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1965 and joined Citibank shortly thereafter. He became the bank's chairman and CEO in 1984. After the bank merged with the Travelers Co. in 1998, Reed served as chairman and co-CEO of the new company, Citigroup. He retired from Citigroup in 2000, and then served as chairman of the New York Stock Exchange from September 2003 until April 2005.
