One of Goldman Sachs' most senior executives moonlights as a DJ in Miami

When David Solomon isn't helping run one of Wall Street's most powerful banks, he is manning the mixers under the stage name DJ D-Sol, according to Kate Kelly at the New York Times.

The Goldman Sachs co-chief operating officer and president recently shared a 30-second video on his private Instagram account of his performance during a July 4 celebration in the Bahamas.

"Great fun this weekend spinning at Nipper's in Great Guana Cay," the 55-year-old banker wrote.

"Mr. Solomon's hobby has become a more or less monthly gig, with recent stops in New York, Miami, and the Bahamas, all noted on the Instagram page," Kelly wrote.

Solomon has an unconventional background and history at Goldman Sachs. He assumed the position of president and co-COO with Harvey Schwartz following Gary Cohn's departure from the firm to join the Trump administration as head of the National Economic Council.

Solomon was previously cohead of investment banking in New York, holding that role since 2006.

In a less traditional path to Wall Street than many of his peers, Solomon skipped the Ivy League and studied political science at Hamilton College in upstate New York. He has said he values his liberal-arts education for the communication, critical thinking, and interpersonal skills it afforded him.

Since he assumed top leadership, Solomon has implemented a number of reforms at the bank to attract talent from younger generations. For instance, he played an important role in revamping the investment bank's junior-banker policies in 2015 to fast-track top performers to promotion, encourage mobility, and replace some tasks with technology.

He's also heavily involved with philanthropy, and was recently an honoree at a gala dinner for Room to Read, along with Sean 'Diddy' Combs.
