Partnership Day: Goldman Sachs Names 115 Partners

Today is the day. Goldman Sachs named 115 partnership managing directors, according to an internal memo obtained by Reuters and DealBook. (Hey, send us a copy!)
Partnership managing directors, or PMDs, get an increased base salary, the opportunity to invest in Goldman deals, a discount on Goldman stock purchases and a share in the partner compensation pool, among other perks. These latest PMDs join the firm’s existing 287 partners.
Last year, the group received more than $2 billion in bonuses, about 20 percent of total compensation paid to some 25,000 employees. That works out to nearly $7 million per PMD on average.
And based on the $36 billion in revenue analysts expect Goldman to generate this year, the expanded pool of PMDs could receive nearly $9 million each.
There’s really no equivalent to anything else like a Goldman partnership in the modern business world. It’s almost archaic in the vast elevation of wealth and status it can bring to those who receive it. Some have compared it to the equivalent of getting “made” by the mafia. But that seriously underestimates what it means to be a Goldman partner. It’s more like being knighted on the battlefield by King Arthur, only this time the battlefield is the global financial market and the Holy Grail is, well, money.
After the jump, read the names of the 115.
[Bonus: If you know what any of these folks do at Goldman, send us an email or leave a note in the comments. It should be interesting to find out which groups at Goldman did well in terms of partnerships.]

    I know Richard A. Kimball Jr. His father’s a doctor who was framed for killing his wife. He became a fugitive from the law before proving himself innocent.
    (Actuality his father is a money manager, but his father-in-law is the Chairman of Blackstone! Good ol’ Peter Peterson!)
