Dobkin was a partner before the firm went public in 1999. He founded Goldman Sachs’s equity capital-markets division in 1985, and helped the firm become the leading underwriter on IPOs globally.
In the meantime, Bloomberg News also reports that TPG Capital hired Goldman Sachs partner Jack Daly to lead the private equity firm’s dealmaking in the industrials industry, a person with knowledge of the move said.
Daly, who leads industrial deals in a merchant banking group at Goldman Sachs, was recruited by TPG’s North America private equity head, Todd Sisitsky, and will join the firm in the coming months, said the person, who asked not to be named because the move hasn’t been announced. Fortune reported the hire earlier.
