Thomas J. Kenny/Goldman Sachs

When Thomas Kenny joined Goldman Sachs in 1999 as head of the Municipal Bond Portfolio Management Team, he was expecting to be in New York for a mere 18 months. Six years later, Kenny, a native of California, is now a managing director and co-head of Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s Global Cash and Fixed Income Portfolio and will likely be here for some time. In his current role, his team is responsible for managing assets in excess of $200 billion across multiple strategies with teams in London, Tokyo and New York. Kenny received a bachelor’s degree in business economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara and an M.S. in finance from Golden Gate University, San Francisco. Prior to moving to Goldman Sachs, he spent 13 years at Franklin Templeton Group of Funds.

Kenny and his wife Susan live in Manhattan and he is active in two organizations close to his heart, World Team Sports and Shake-a-Leg, both groups dedicated to helping people with disabilities. Kenny can definitely relate as he was paralyzed from the waist down while still in college. Kenny’s roots are in county Galway. His father’s family is from Ballinasloe and his mother’s is from Glenamaddy.
