Eric Dobkin: The father of the IPO
As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our April capital markets focus.
To hear Eric Dobkin talk about Goldman Sachs, you would assume he was heading in to work at 200 West Street before the markets open tomorrow morning. But after a tenure of 49 years that only finished in 2016 when he was 73, it’s hardly a surprise.
“I may be the longest serving individual at Goldman Sachs who was a partner,” he says.
Life at Goldman began for Dobkin in 1967, when he started in the firm’s Philadelphia office.
