These gamechangers exposed some of the biggest corporate frauds in history.
Greg Smith has gotten his 15 minutes in the spotlight recently for doing something most of us can only dream about — quitting his job in spectacular fashion. The former Goldman Sachs executive's resignation was coupled with scathing New York Times op-ed lifting the curtain on the alleged toxic culture inside the investment bank.
Already, the shockwaves of Smith's editorial have been felt — the former executive director alleged some management at Goldman Sachs referred to clients derisively as "muppets"; CEO Lloyd Blankfein later said his staff was conducting an internal investigation into the matter — though what long-term impact, if any, it may have on the firm remains to be seen. For Smith, to be considered a true patriot of change, he'll have a long way to go to measure up to these whistleblowers — eight businesspeople who stood up and changed their companies for good.
