Housekeeping: So Long To Matt

  • Author:
  • Updated:

Today is my last day at Dealbreaker. All the obvious things are true: this is the best job I've ever had, it's been an incredibly fun two years, and I will always be grateful to Bess and Breaking Media for giving me this opportunity. Also to all of you: thanks for reading, for commenting, for emailing, and for generally being the best audience on the internet, financial or otherwise. I will miss it here.

After some vacation I'll be moving on to another opportunity, which will be announced shortly after Labor Day. I can't tell you much about it yet, but I will still be writing about finance on the internet, and I'm excited for it.1 I hope you'll keep reading. Also I hope you'll follow me on Twitter, if that's your thing.

I started reading Dealbreaker as a junior M&A lawyer in 2006, so I've been a fan from the beginning. It's still a little hard to believe that I got to actually help make Dealbreaker for a while. It's been a great privilege, and I'm looking forward to being a fan again.

1.Also there will probably be footnotes. This is a bit of a throwaway but it is also my last Dealbreaker footnote so let me take a moment here. Okay.

Housekeeping: Dealbreaker Is Looking For Columnists

Do you want to write things on Dealbreaker? We are looking for a few more regular columnists to write regularly on the areas of their expertise and interest. Topics could include private equity, hedge funds, b-school, stripping one’s way through b-school, or something that has absolutely nothing to do with any of those things but which you are particularly passionate about. Topics like "what I am thinking about this week" or "finance!" will probably be less successful. If you are interested, and can commit to writing a column each week or so, please get in touch and tell us who you are (a resume if you want, or just what you do) and what you'd like to write about. A sample post on your idea would also be great. As always, if you are currently gainfully employed on Wall Street (and would like to stay that way) for a firm that would not look favorably on a part-time writing career, anonymous/pseudonymous columns are fine.
