"Jamie Dimon is a great manager, but he's not Hercules, able to achieve mythical events."1

- Michael Mayo, Equity Analyst, Credit Suisse First Boston2 (CSFB), in 2001.

"We have been doing the right stuff and we have become a little oasis in the storm."3

- Jamie Dimon (Dimon), Chairman and CEO, Bank One Corporation, in 2002.


On January 3, 2003, Jamie Dimon (Dimon), the then Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Chicago-based retail banking and credit card major Bank One Corporation (Bank One), was awarded the 2002 CEO of the year award4 by Morningstar Inc.5 (Morningstar). Dimon was recognized with this award for steering Bank One through turbulent times in the financial services industry. On Dimon being given the award, Patrick Dorsey (Dorsey), director, stock analysis, Morningstar, said, "The 2002 winner of Morningstar's CEO of the Year award proves that you don't need a grand strategy to run a great business - you just need to get the basics right. Jamie Dimon has transformed what once was considered one of the most poorly run banks in the country into a solidly profitable firm with a bright future."6
