New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, the former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said he has not discussed becoming the chief executive of Bank of America Corp. with the Charlotte lender.
"I can confirm I have not spoken with them," Corzine said in an interview Thursday in Newark.
Corzine, who lost a bid for re-election to Christopher Christie, declined to say if he's interested in returning to Wall Street after leaving office next year.
B of A is searching for a CEO to replace Kenneth D. Lewis, who is retiring next month. Speculation on successors has included Corzine, who left Goldman in 1999 as the firm went public.
