“I think people should seek adventure in life, as opposed to just allowing their ambitions to drive where they want to end up. Lots of people say, “Tell me what are the steps to get from here to the C.E.O.’s office.” I can say honestly I never sought to be a C.E.O. But what I’ve always wanted was a new challenge, what I call an adventure. Seek adventure. Seek excitement in what you do”.
Ken Frazier, New York Times, 3/8/18

Yes, there are a total of only three black CEOs in the Fortune 500: Kenneth Frazier at Merck, Roger Ferguson Jr. at TIAA, and Marvin Ellison at J.C. Penney.
