Goldman Sachs planning Seattle base

Goldman Sachs Blink

Goldman Sachs executives are packing their bags and relocating to Washington. No, not just the other Washington — this one.

The Seattle Times reports that the powerful company is moving to Seattle an investment banking veteran who has co-led its Western regional advisory group in San Francisco, establishing a local office focused on the region’s growth companies.

Rather than ask why, said Dave Eisman, who will run what he describes as a small group, “Another way of looking at it is, how could you not have been here, because the companies and the people are that important?”

At the top of the food chain, “there are extraordinary companies here that are global leaders … companies that are changing the face of the planet, basically,” he said.

But that’s not all that attracted Goldman, which may now be the only top global investment bank with a full-time office here.
