Abigail Johnson is the granddaughter of the founder of Fidelity Investments. In 2014, she became the president and CEO of the company. In 2016, Forbes ranked her as the 16th most powerful person in the world, probably because she oversees $2.1 trillion in worldwide investors’ savings, pensions, and investments.
However, Johnson isn’t ostentatious—she’s a grinder. One of her most important philosophies, which keeps her grounded, is to know that your job is never done. Her friends call her Abby and she dresses, as one publication put it, “soberly.”
