In an industry that seems to put a premium on homogeneity, Richard M. Rosenberg, chairman and chief executive of BankAmerica Corp., stands out. He always makes an impression; some even call him "Hurricane Rosenberg." "He is like a whirlwind," said Barry Deutsch, a Coral Springs, Fla.-based bank consultant.

A. W. (Tom) Clausen, who led BankAmerica Corp. from near-collapse to record profitability in his second stint as chief executive, formally retired Thursday and handed over the company's leadership to Richard M. Rosenberg.

Cooper, Methodist minister turned cost-cutting banker, resigned Monday as president and chief operating officer of BankAmerica and of its principal unit, Bank of America, after apparently losing a power struggle.
