 n.— «The decision on who joins the high-profile partnership “club” is made by the bank’s senior management team, led by Mr Blankfein and co-presidents Gary Cohn and Jon Winkelried, through extensive discussions until a consensus is reached. The names are then checked by senior people from other divisions in a procedure known as “cross-roughing.”» —“Goldman Sachs adds fewest partners to elite pool since last recession” by James Quinn Telegraph (London, United Kingdom) Oct. 29, 2008.
