On July 9, 2008, The Wall Street Journal reported that de Molina had made it to Wachovia's shortlist of potential CEOs: "Mr. de Molina, 50 years old, is considered an outspoken and bold leader who would shake things up in trying to turn around Wachovia, though he might have difficulty fitting into Wachovia's genteel corporate culture."
