After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania and subsequently earning her MBA at the University of Chicago, Edie Hunt began her impressive career at Citibank. After a series of promotions, she joined J. Aron, a small private commodities trading company, where she assumed the role of Personnel Director. Eleven months later, Goldman Sachs
bought J. Aron, and as a result, Edie eventually became the Chief Administrative Officer for Goldman Sachs’ Fixed Income division. When the Fixed Income division merged with Currency and Commodities, she became increasingly involved in recruiting. She was named Co-COO for Human Capital Management and was promoted to Partner in 2004. From 2008 to 2011, Edie managed primarily diversity, recruitment, and training. In 2011, she retired as Partner. She continues to act as Advisory Director and Chief Diversity Officer at Goldman Sachs. Edie is actively involved in a number of charitable organizations—particularly those focused on education and the advancement of women. Such organizations include the mentoring program, New Jersey Needs You, and the Board of Trustees at St. Philip’s Academy.
