Monday, January 06, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Board of 100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) announces the promotion of Amanda Pullinger, the organization's Executive Director, to become its Chief Executive Officer. The appointment recognizes the significant role that Ms. Pullinger has played in the growth and success of the organization both during the six years she has served as Executive Director, and the five years prior, during which she was on the Founding Board of 100 Women in Hedge Funds and served as its President for two years.

Ms. Pullinger will lead a staff team based in New York City. Alexis Belladonna has been appointed as Manager of Event Planning and Volunteer Resources, and Brigitte Spinthourakis as Membership Services Associate, both effective January 1, 2014.

"Over our thirteen year history, 100WHF has provided unique educational programming, tailored peer leverage and impactful philanthropy. We are proud that 100WHF has grown to a global professional organization that requires the expertise and commitment of a Chief Executive Officer," Mimi Drake, Chair of the Board of 100 Women in Hedge Funds and President of Permit Capital Advisors, said. "We are thrilled to recognize Amanda's talents and passion for the industry through this well-deserved promotion to become 100WHF's first Chief Executive Officer. Amanda has been instrumental in developing 100WHF's global growth in membership and its important partnerships. We are confident that this appointment will strengthen the organization as it continues to make a difference for the industry and the communities in which we live.”

As Executive Director, Ms. Pullinger has managed the global growth of the organization from 6 locations and 5,000 members to 17 locations and over 12,000 members today. Working with over 300 volunteer practitioners and the Board of Directors, she has brought 100WHF to its current position of hosting over 100 industry education events annually around the globe, raising over $3 million annually for charitable causes and connecting over 300 senior practitioners through bespoke events and conversations.

Ms. Pullinger is a former principal of Aquamarine Capital Management. She is currently on the Boards of two British charities - SkillForce (www.skillforce.org) and The Halo Trust (www.halotrust.org) - and serves on the Advisory Board of the Oxford Alumni Association of New York. She previously served on the Boards of the NYU Cancer Institute and Girls' Prep, and was on the founding Board of 100 Women in Hedge Funds, serving as its President for two years. She is a member of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Ms. Pullinger graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford University, in 1987 with an Honours Degree in Modern History. She earned an MBA from La Salle University, Philadelphia, in 1998, and received the Academic Award for MBA student of the year as well as the Beta Gamma Sigma designation.
