Chase Coleman ’97 was married today.
Stephanie Anne Ercklentz, a daughter of Mai V. Hallingby-Harrison of Palm Beach, Fla., and Enno W. Ercklentz Jr. of New York, was married last evening to Charles Payson Coleman III, a son of Kim and Charles Payson Coleman Jr. [’72] of Old Brookville, N.Y.
Mr. Coleman, 29, is known as Chase. He is the founder and managing partner of Tiger Technology Management, a New York investment firm. . . . The bridegroom is a descendant of Peter Stuyvesant, the last Dutch governor of New York.
Coleman has a high profile in the financial world.
Tiger Technology Management is a roughly $500 million hedge fund that is based in New York City and run by a rising star of the hedge fund business, Chase Coleman. The fund was up over 50% in 2001, and reportedly was up big again in 2002. Referred to as a “Tiger Cub”, Tiger Technology is one of several funds loosely run under the old Tiger Management umbrella. Run by the famous Julian Robertson, Tiger Management shut down in 2000 after returning 31.5% per year (before fees) between 1980 and 2000.
The above article mentions a big position that Coleman took in Overstock two years ago. It has done quite well for him since then. Coleman also gets some mentions in a recent (not very good) book about Tiger Management. More on Chase and Tiger here.
If Coleman does as well in the next 2 years, as he has in the last few, he will be getting plenty of calls from his 10th reunion gift committee. As far as I know, he is the most successful young Eph in finance.
Here at EphBlog, however, we will judge Coleman not by either the wealth that he accumulates or by the generosity of his gifts to the College, but by his fulfillment of the vows that he took today. The only more important job than husband that he will ever have is father.
Congratulations to all.
