Former Goldman exec dies


Sad to report.

David Silfen, who helped merge Goldman, Sachs' equities division with securities sales and trading and arbitrage before serving as co-head of the new unit, has died. He was 69.

Bloomberg News reports that he died November 28 at his home in Manhattan, his wife, Lyn Silfen, said in a telephone interview. The cause was pancreatic cancer.

In 1990, Silfen, along with Roy Zuckerberg, another general partner, was named co-head of the equities division at New York-based Goldman Sachs after they helped combine the operations that expanded the scope of the unit. In his new role, Silfen, was instrumental in building the firm’s equities derivatives business, according to an account in the New York Times.
