How the Fortress Investment Group was able to get Peter Briger.

After completing his B.A at Princeton University Peter Briger got a job at Goldman Sachs, this would mark the beginning of an illustrious career spanning more than three decades in the financial sector. Over the years he has held various positions in the two organizations he has worked for and as such has gained a lot of experience in markets spanning the country as well as the globe. His interest in the Asian market saw him lead various departments at Goldman Sachs at a time when the market was beginning to open up. His experience in this area would prove vital as he would later become an advisor at the IFC. This was before the Fortress Investment Group headhunted him. His life would take a new turn at this point given the new position that would prove to be more taxing than the previous ones. This was due to the fact that he was tasked with establishing a new department at Fortress. Peter Briger would create the Credit department and manage it till it was able to catch up with other departments that were part and parcel of Fortress as of its founding. This was no mean task, but thanks to the experience gained over the years Peter Briger was able to take it all in. He would go ahead and establish the credit division, which he leads to date. The division has its headquarters are based in San Francisco, and it’s these offices that Briger is currently in charge of. He is also the Co-Chairman of the larger group as well as Co-CEO. These positions came with a lot of responsibilities which however did not stop Peter Briger from finding time to do the things he is passionate about. He has a passion for nurturing young entrepreneurs something that came out clearly when he was requested to be part of the team developing the Princeton Alumni Entrepreneurs Fund. He took on the same with zeal and was even among those who helped fund the same in initial stages. The fund has been instrumental in nurturing a number of projects that are today in the market.
