Goldman Sachs' head of HR is leaving

Goldman Sachs’ global head of human capital management is leaving the firm at the end of the year.

Edith Cooper, who spent 21 years at Goldman Sachs, will retire from the firm at the end of the year, according to a memo seen by Business Insider. She will then become a senior director.

“During her nine years as head of HCM, Edith modernised the ways in which we recruit, develop and retain our people, enhancing our world-class talent organisation,” Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein said in a memo.

“Through her commitment to enhancing the professional experience of our people and maximizing their talents and potential, Edith has helped to make Goldman Sachs a great place to work,” he added.

Dane Holmes, global head of investor relations and global head of Pine Street, will become head of human capital management effective January 1. Pine Street is the firm’s leadership development group for partners and select managing directors.

He will be replaced in his role as head of investor relations by Heather Kennedy Miner. Most recently, she served as global head of Strategic Advisory Solutions in Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM).
