Poet Named Division CEO at Goldman Sachs

October 2, 2018

Carey HalioAfter 18 years at the leading global investment firm Goldman Sachs, Carey Halio ‘95 has been named CEO of its lending and deposit-taking division.

While 79 percent of the company’s executive positions are held by men, Halio’s achievement takes aim at the glass ceiling and reflects the gradually increasing opportunities for women in Fortune 500 companies. 

Halio has served as chief financial officer of Goldman Sachs Bank USA for the past four years, and she previously worked in the company’s credit risk division. As CEO, Halio will take on many new responsibilities that include assuming a leading role in expanding the bank’s deposit base, overseeing the bank’s capital planning and regulatory affairs, and serving as chairperson of the banking division’s management committee.

Halio graduated from Whittier College with a degree in business administration, and she then went on to earn an MBA from Columbia Business School. Before joining the Goldman Sachs team in 2000, Halio served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala, focusing on microfinance for women. She is a current member of the Whittier College Board of Trustees and serves on the audit and finance committees.
