Glass ceiling? Ah, she could have always worked somewhere else and not taken advantage of her father's nepotism?

You may be looking at the glass ceiling half full. :) Sure, it's easy to point to possible nepotism. The other possibility is that she is actually far more qualified than the average CEO who spent a career expending inordinate energies playing the internal politics needed to climb. With less of that burden, Abby may have been able to concentrate on honing her Fidelity-managing craft as it were. People I know on the inside largely give her credit for doing just that.

Terrific and the agility of privately held companies...good for her/them. They don't have to report quarterly earnings nor developments to anyone so they can take their longer term shots. And they have the $$ to do so. Good stuff
