Sorry, Larry Fink.

The New York Post reports that former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner passed up a chance to work at mega-fund manager BlackRock, according to sources.

Geithner, who has landed a plum private-equity gig with Warburg Pincus, opted against joining CEO Fink’s BlackRock - with $4tril in assets under management - because he wanted to have a more involved role with any company he ended up joining.

'I don’t think (Geithner) wanted to be someone’s arm candy', said one source familiar with the situation.

Sources said Geithner appreciated the fact that Warburg’s top officials consisted of 'talented guys with no big egos'.
