Pan European Equity Shares Sales team. In 2008, Ed became head of
our European Research Sales team before expanding his
responsibilities to head One Delta Franchise Sales for Europe. He
was named managing director in 2006 and partner in 2014.

Throughout his career at Goldman Sachs, Ed has exemplified the
firm’s commitment to client service and has been instrumental in
the growth of our European franchise. In addition to his

Please join us in thanking Ed for his many contributions to the
Securities Division, and in wishing him and his family the very
best for the future.

to help end HPV-related cancer. He ran a marathon in Berlin and
has climbed a number of 4,000-meter peaks in the Alps, including
the Matterhorn and the Eiger, according
