Alternative asset management firm TPG has named Jon Winkelried (pictured) as Co-Chief Executive Officer of TPG Holdings alongside TPG Co-Founder and current Chief Executive Officer Jim Coulter. 

David Bonderman, who co-founded TPG with Coulter, will continue in his role as Co-Founder and Chairman of TPG.

Winkelried, who previously served as the President and Co-Chief Operating Officer of Goldman Sachs, brings to TPG significant experience in helping build, manage and lead one of the world’s leading financial institutions. During his 27-year tenure at Goldman Sachs, Winkelried held various senior roles including co-head of the firm’s Investment Banking division, co-head of Fixed Income, Currency and Commodities (FICC) division, and head of the firm’s Leveraged Finance business.

“Jon brings experience, insights and creativity to TPG as we continue our evolution as a firm,” says Coulter. “During the past 23 years, TPG has built a worldwide alternative asset platform, differentiated ourselves as an industry leader in products, industries and geographies, and created new and dynamic opportunities for our investors. As we enter our next era of growth, Jon’s track record of building great investment businesses will be fundamental.”

“As we operate in this increasingly complex environment, it is important to have strong leadership,” says Bonderman. “The combination of Jim and Jon brings together complementary skill sets that will benefit our firm greatly. I look forward to working with them both to achieve future success at TPG.”
“I have always admired TPG under Jim’s and David’s leadership and, as an advisor to TPG Special Situations Partners, have had the opportunity to grow closer to the firm,” sats Winkelried. “Building on the momentum, expanded platform, and significant talent, I am excited about the opportunity to be part of TPG’s next era.”

Winkelried will assume his role in early November and will be based in TPG’s San Francisco office.
