Lorenzo Simonelli is 41, slim, nice looking and well spoken. He also possesses an impressive resume.
Last October he was tapped to run General Electric's fastest-growing business, GE Oil & Gas, and prior to that, he ran GE Transportation.
Simonelli will be closely watched both inside and outside of the conglomerate. He is often mentioned as a potential candidate to succeed his boss, Jeff Immelt, who became CEO of the company in 2001 at the tender age of 44.
