BORN

1943, Rocky Mount, N.C.

EDUCATION

Virginia Episcopal School; BA in economics, basketball player, University of North Carolina.

MANAGEMENT STYLE

Heavy on "EQ"--emotional quotient. "He gets what makes you tick and empathizes really well, as opposed to being driven by the numbers," says one peer.

FANS

Ex-Honeywell CEO Larry Bossidy, Exxon Mobil boss Lee Raymond, ex-Chase CEO Walter Shipley, and Jack Welch all count themselves among Harrison admirers.

DETRACTORS

His reserve doesn't impress lower-level J.P. Morgan employees.

FAVORITE SAYING

"Leaders of the future will be those who can get great people around them."

FAMILY

Wife, Anne, and two young daughters.
