    Goldman Sachs announced its largest-ever class of managing directors. Of the 509 promoted, 44% are millennials. The firm announces managing-director promotions every two years. It’s one of the most coveted positions on Wall Street, a step below partner at the premier investment bank.

Goldman Sachs just announced a new class of 509 managing directors – the largest class in the firm’s history.

The position is one of the most coveted on Wall Street, one step below partner at the prestigious investment-banking firm. The firm now has 2,148 managing directors, making up 7.1% of the company’s workforce.

It’s also one of the youngest classes the bank has promoted – 44% are millennials, up from 30% in 2015.

Other headline stats about the class:

    66% started their careers as analysts or associates at Goldman Sachs. 24% of the class is women, down from 25% in 2015. 130 were promoted in the securities division, up from 102 in 2015. 101 were promoted in investment banking, up from 97 in 2015. 52 were promoted in technology, up from 38 in 2015. Eight were promoted in consumer and commercial banking – the division that houses the bank’s online-lending business, Marcus – compared with zero in 2015.

Here’s the full statement:
