Robin Hood Foundation Announces Management Changes

At its annual board meeting held on January 29, 2015, Robin Hood, elected David Einhorn as Chair of its Board of Directors. Mr. Einhorn, Co-founder and President of Greenlight Capital, succeeds Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group. Mr. Sternlicht will continue to serve on several Robin Hood committees, including the Development, Executive and Housing Committees. Mr. Sternlicht has served on Robin Hood's board since 2009 - the last two as Chair - and during that time, Robin Hood raised a record amount of money to help fund hundreds of front-line poverty fighting organizations throughout the five boroughs. Mr. Einhorn joined Robin Hood's Board of Directors in 2010, having previously served on its Leadership Council and as Vice Chair of the Board for the past two years. He was instrumental in conceiving and organizing the Robin Hood Investors Conference, launched in 2013, which brought together dozens of the biggest names in finance, technology, retail and energy to debate, share ideas, and provide insight on navigating volatile markets. During Mr. Einhorn's tenure on the Robin Hood Board, he also chaired the Finance Committee and will continue the course that Mr. Sternlicht set for finding innovative ways to fight poverty - such as the Immigrant Justice Corps, the Robin Hood College Success Prize, and other long-term programs designed to serve as national models of social change. In addition, Mr. Einhorn will focus on expanding Robin Hood's day-to-day mission of helping countless New Yorkers gain access to the services they need to lead more secure and productive lives for themselves and their families. Mr. Einhorn also serves on the boards of City Year and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, and is Founder and Trustee of the Einhorn Family Charitable Trust, whose mission is to help people get along better. The Board also elected two new Vice Chairs: Anne Dinning, Managing Director and Executive Committee Member, D. E. Shaw Group; and Larry Robbins, Founder, Portfolio Manager and CEO of Glenview Capital Management. In addition, three new Board members were announced: Cecily Carson, President and Trustee of The Carson Family Charitable Trust and a founding member of Robin Hood's Leadership Council; Katie Couric; and Alex Navab, Partner & Head of Americas Private Equity for KKR and also a founding member of Robin Hood's Leadership Council. Robin Hood also announced that Deborah Winshel will resign from her current role as President and Chief Operating Officer to join BlackRock as a Managing Director reporting to Chairman and CEO Laurence D. Fink.
