Christine O'Brien, the head of investment stewardship at activist investment firm Elliott Management, has resigned after almost 12 years with the firm, according to a report by Reuters, citing two unnamed sources familiar with the matter. 

O'Brien who joined Elliott's research and finance department in 2011, was appointed head of investment stewardship in 2017 with a remit to develop better relations between the $56 billion hedge fund and other investment firms, including BlackRock, Vanguard, and State Street.

O'Brien, who earned degrees from Fordham University, worked closely with managing partner Jesse Cohn, the long-time leader of the firm's activist investments.
