In a statement issued by Goldman Sachs last month, Lloyd Blankfield, the company’s CEO congratulated the 70 employees who were appointed partners. Every two years Goldman Sachs appoints more partners in its firm. The list for 2012 was particularly short, making it the second smallest since 1998 when the company only made 57 employees partner. Two years ago, the figure was 110.
Three of the new 2012 partners are: John Mallory, Hugh Lawson and Scott Lebovitz. Goldman Sachs confirmed the list of individuals whose promotion will take effect from January 1, 2013, the beginning of the new fiscal year.
John Mallory is involved in the supervision of the company’s affiliation with the Steinbrenner family. In 2007, he also played an integral role in the renegotiation of Alex Rodriguez’s contract with the Yankees. Lawson has been working at Goldman Sachs since 1998, first in St. Petersburg, Florida for eight years, and also in Miami and Los Angeles. Mallory is registered both as a Government Securities Broker and a Registered Broker Dealer.
Another new partner at Goldman Sachs is Hugh Lawson. A decade earlier, in 2002, he was appointed joint head of the department that deals with hedge fund strategy in Europe with Nadja Pinnavaia. Lawson received another promotion, becoming global head of product management at the company’s Hedge Fund Partners. In 2004, he discussed the notion of having Goldman Sachs Hedge Fund Strategies marketing its fund of hedge-funds businesses through its alliance with JBWere. He is a registered Broker Dealer Agent and has been with Goldman Sachs since 1997.
Scott Lebovitz, Goldman Sachs’ other new partner among the 2012 list of 70, has also been with the firm for a decade and a half. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a BS in Commerce. Since April 2011, Lebovitz has been Director of Cobalt International Energy Inc. as well as a Director of EF Energy Holdings and Energy Future Holdings Corp.
This is a spotlight on just three of the 70 employees who will become partner at Goldman Sachs starting January 1, 2013.
