EX-GOLDMAN CHAIR TO HEAD MF GLOBAL

JON Corzine, a one-time Goldman Sachs chair and former New Jersey governor, was yesterday named as the new chief executive officer of MF Global Holdings, a futures and options broker that has lost money for the last four quarters. MF Global shares soared nine per cent on the news that Corzine, 63, would replace Bernard Dan. Corzine will start the new role immediately.
