Perhaps the only good news of the past quarter was the addition of two senior members to the Maverick team. Bill Goodell joined the firm on September 1st (great timing!) as our Chief Operating Officer and has been asked to coordinate our non-investment functions and to serve as a resource to those teams. Before joining Maverick, Bill spent ten years as the General Counsel of Tiger Management and served as the President of the Robertson Foundation. Bill also spent two years as the Chief Administrative Officer of Moore Capital. Before entering the hedge fund world, he was a Partner of King & Spalding.
Bill serves on the Board of Trustees of Washington & Lee University, Episcopal High School and the Tiger Foundation. He received a B.A. in Political Economics (Cum Laude) from Williams College and a J.D. (Magna Cum Laude) from Washington & Lee University’s School of Law. This is a new role for
Maverick, but as the complexity of our environment increases to have someone with Bill’s experience and judgment has already proven to be of tremendous value.
The whole letter is an interesting view into the world of hedge funds. Bet that Goodell is thankful that he signed his contract before September 1. What do you have to be thankful for today?
