Friends and investors said his decisions are unequivocal. He doesn’t drink out of plastic water bottles for environmental and health reasons, and has been active in education reform and the effort to legalise gay marriage in New York. “When Dan believes in something…he has a singular focus and is relentless in the pursuit of his objective,” says Jefferies Group Inc. Chairman and CEO Richard Handler, who hired Mr. Loeb in 1991.
