Previous news reports suggested that there would be few Australian promotions in this round, because Goldman Sachs already had a large number of Australian MDs.

Goldman Sachs’ new managing director selection process should help it keep numbers down in future years; as of this round, the process will take two years instead of one year previously.

These are the Australians who will become Goldman Sachs MDs as of 1 January 2014:

  • David Gribble
