Before his tenure in politics, New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine spent 24 years at Goldman, Sachs & Co., eventually working his way up to chief executive officer and steering the company from a private firm to a publicly traded corporation.

He then became a U.S. senator from New Jersey in 2000, serving on the Banking and Budget committees, among others. Corzine, a Democrat, also helped craft the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which tightened accounting practices in response to the corporate corruption scandals of Enron, WorldCom, and other businesses.
