Abigail Pierrepont Johnson

Abigail Pierrepont Johnson, is President of her father’s company, Fidelity Investments (also known as Fidelity Management and Research). But she didn’t land this position due to her family heritage; she started off as a stock analyst in 1988 and then moved up to portfolio manager.  Other executive positions she held at the company before becoming President include: associate director; senior vice president; president of investment services; president of Fidelity’s Employer Services Company. Johnson runs the employer services division of Fidelity Investments, the Boston-based powerhouse which was founded by her grandfather. In 2004, the company managed $893 billion in assets on the mutual-fund market, which has led to her being seen as the most influential woman among the ranks of American financial executives.
