Mark Schwartz is returning to Goldman Sachs as a vice chairman and chairman of Goldman Sachs Asia-Pacific, based in Beijing.
Schwartz will represent “the importance of China” and the Asia-Pacific region to the firm’s overall business. The Asia-Pacific region “continues to represent many of the most dynamic and important economies in the world,” said Schwartz.
New York-based J Michael Evans, chairman of Asia-Pacific since 2004, will continue in his role as a vice chairman of the firm and global head of growth markets.
Schwartz will work alongside Masa Mochida, president of Goldman Sachs Japan, and David Ryan, president of Goldman Sachs Asia-Pacific Ex-Japan. He will rejoin the firm’s management committee, on which he served from 1999 - when the firm went public - until his departure in 2001.
