Goldman’s Sheila Patel, Chairman of $1.8 Trillion Manager, to Retire
Mon, 28 Dec 2020 20:19:27 +0000
(Bloomberg) — Sheila Patel, chairman of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s asset-management unit, is leaving the $1.8 trillion division after almost two decades at the firm.Patel, 51, is among the company’s most senior women and shepherded some of Goldman’s highest-profile relationships with investors around the world. She will step down from the partnership and become an advisory director in the new year, Chief Executive Officer David Solomon said in a memo to staff Monday.“Sheila has contributed to our culture, including by serving as a mentor to many Goldman Sachs professionals around the world,” Solomon said in the memo. “I look forward to benefiting from her continued counsel.”Patel rose to Goldman’s highest ranks in 2006 when she was named partner within three years of joining the firm. Part of the bank’s management committee in Europe, she’s overseen the fast-growing areas of environmental, social and governance and impact investing.Prior to joining the asset-management unit, she worked in various roles in the equities division, including as co-head of distribution in Asia and head of U.S. derivatives sales.Goldman’s partnership ranks have been shrinking, with a number of long-time executives departing in recent years. This year, the firm has added the smallest number of partners since 1998, a move that can limit costs, as the elite ranking tends to come with significant perks.The asset-management unit has also been facing tremendous changes. Tim O’Neill, a key leader at the division since 2008 and partner since 1990 who helped transform the business into a juggernaut, was moved into a senior advisory role in recent months, while Eric Lane and Julian Salisbury were assigned to co-lead asset management as it adds more heft in merchant-banking capabilities. The bank is seeking to boost its presence in private fundraising.Meanwhile, leaders at the business including quantitative investing co-head Gary Chropuvka and Kane Brenan, who oversaw a business that worked with pension funds, have announced their departures since mid-2019.Patel was elevated to the firm’s management committee in 2018 as part of Solomon’s first major personnel moves after being named CEO, boosting the number of women in the firm’s senior-most governing body.(Updates with past departures starting in sixth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Mon, 28 Dec 2020 12:00:00 +0000
(Bloomberg) — Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is leading a $65 million financing in Echelon Fitness, giving the bank and another investor a controlling stake in a maker of exercise machines as more people work out at home amid the pandemic.The Chattanooga, Tennessee-based company competes with Peloton Interactive Inc., Lululemon Athletica Inc.’s Mirror, Tonal, Tempo, Icon’s NordicTrack, Hydrow and other connected fitness companies with products such as a technology-enabled treadmill, exercise rowers and bikes that are more affordable than most rivals.Its entry-level bike, for instance, was on sale for about $500 on Walmart’s website over the weekend, while its top-of-the-line bike retails for about $1,600 on Amazon. Peloton’s bike, by comparison, was listed at $1,895, marked down from $2,245.Goldman invested in Echelon through GS Growth, part of New York firm’s merchant banking division. Piper Sandler advised Echelon on the financing, which also resulted in additional funding from North Castle Partners, which together with Goldman holds the controlling interest.“We are excited about their omnichannel and multi-product offering that enables a broader reach to retailers and consumers alike,” Stephen Kerns, a member of GS Growth, said in an emailed statement.In 2020, Echelon’s revenue soared by more than 500% to exceed $100 million, with its app delivering both live and on-demand classes to more than 100,000 users.North Castle, which invested in Echelon last year before the virus outbreak, participated in the recent financing as the company experienced “explosive growth,” said Jon Canarick, managing partner at the Greenwich, Connecticut-based private equity firm.During the pandemic, companies operating in the health and wellness sphere have attracted institutional investors, in part due to expectations of ongoing growth. Calm, Strava, Zwift, Whoop and Hyperice are among closely-held companies that have raised millions of dollars this year from venture capital and private equity firms, among others.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
