For the past eight years, while at Goldman Sachs, Tom led “Hudson Street”, and Goldman’s investments into (and, in some cases, exits from) firms such as: iSuppli , Lusight, Medley, Trim Tabs, QSG, Pacific Epoch, Wall Street on Demand, and Epocrates (Nasdaq: EPOC). During this period, Tom traveled the world: vetting hundreds of companies; meeting key industry players; leading investments; serving on more than a dozen boards; and leveraging his operating experience to advise portfolio companies on ways to improve productivity and performance.
Prior to joining Goldman Sachs in 2003, Tom spent 16 years at Merrill Lynch where, among other things, he ran an independent research and clearing business. This experience provided Tom unique insights into the dynamic needs of investment managers, investment bankers, traders, and operations professionals and the knowledge of what it takes to match those needs with solutions from a myriad of service providers.
“We are fortunate to have attracted Tom to our team”, commented Ken Marlin, Founder and Managing Partner of Marlin & Associates. “His combination of real-world operating experience and transactional expertise is a hallmark of our firm.”
