When you can no longer lead the young into a den of deceit, you become a champion.
Pembroke Pines, Fl (PRWEB) March 14, 2012
Collegiate Nation announced today that it salutes Greg Smith who resigned as executive director from Goldman Sachs, in an open letter he sent to The New York Times titled Why I am Leaving Goldman Sachs.
"Greg Smith has stood up as the super adult in the room. We need more people like him. His moment of truth arrived when he couldn't look at college interns in the eye and tell them that they should follow his path. That shows a deep moral compass. When you refuse to lead the young into a den of deceit, you become a champion. That's what Greg has done and no amount of money or status can replace this singular achievement," said Evelyn Castillo-Bach, the founder of Collegiate Nation.
Over the course of Mr. Smith's career, he advised two of the largest hedge funds on the planet, five of the largest asset managers in the United States, and three of the most prominent sovereign wealth funds in the Middle East and Asia. His clients have a total asset base of more than a trillion dollars.
