Spotlight On Abby

News summary by MFWire's editors

After years of ascending at Fidelity [profile], Abby Johnson is on top and in the spotlight.

No one in the press showed any surprise yesterday when news broke that 52-year-old Abby is taking over as CEO from her 84-year-old father. Employees at the Boston Behemoth found out via an internal memo, and word soon made it to the press. A host of national, local and financial press covered news of Abby's ascension, with Vicktor Reklaitis and Mark DeCambre of MarketWatch offering perhaps the most provocative headline: "Abigail Johnson: The most powerful woman in finance?"

Here's some of the other headlines, complete with links. (And remember, you can always check out the MFWire news feed at MFWire.com/News to see more recent mutual fund-related news from the around the internet.)
