John Rogers, Goldman Sachs’ chief of staff and one of the firm’s most influential executives is stepping back from his role.
Rogers, 67, is handing over his responsibilities to Russell Horowitz, a former Goldman partner who left the bank in 2020, the bank announced in a memo to staff on Tuesday.
Rogers, dubbed the “board whisperer” by some insiders, is remaining at Goldman as executive vice-president and secretary to the board.
Horowitz, whose role starts on September 5, was previously at Goldman for 16 years and held several positions including deputy chief of staff. He most recently worked as chief global affairs officer at Citadel, the investment firm run by Ken Griffin.
“The opportunity to go back in this capacity, it felt right for a million reasons,” Horowitz told the Financial Times.
As chief of staff, Horowitz will oversee operations in Goldman’s executive office and manage corporate communications, government and regulatory affairs, and corporate engagement.
