Goldman Sachs M&A banker Michael Carr retiring
“Over the course of his extensive career at the firm, Michael has been the consummate adviser to our clients’ corporate boards,” Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon said in the memo. “Michael’s leadership and thoughtful advice, including most recently in his role as co-chairman of global mergers and acquisitions, have contributed to Goldman Sachs’ longstanding position as the leading M&A advisory firm.”
A representative for Goldman Sachs confirmed the contents of the memo.
Carr joined Goldman Sachs as a partner in 1998 from Salomon Smith Barney. During his tenure, he helped oversee the firm’s industrials, natural resources and Americas advisory practices before becoming global co-head of M&A in 2015. In 2020, he was named co-chair of global M&A, consistent with its practice of placing top bankers in roles where they can dedicate time to clients rather than management.
He has agreed to stay on as an advisory director at the firm, according to the memo.
