Peter Oppenheimer doesn’t get a lot of the spotlight at Apple – unless you’re tuning into a quarterly earnings report – but the Apple CFO plays a huge role in Apple’s profitability and now he’ll be lending his talents to Wall Street by joining Goldman Sachs Board of Directors.
Goldman Sachs announced this morning that Oppenheimer will join the board immediately as an independent director of the firm:
“Peter’s 25 years of broad experience across important industries will add a valuable perspective to our Board of Directors,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chairman and CEO. “We appreciate his willingness to serve as a director and look forward to benefitting from his judgment and counsel.”
Oppenheimer will be the 10th independent director on the Board that has expanded to 13 directors. In his role at Goldman Sachs, Peter will be a member of each of the firm’s Audit, Risk, Compensation and Corporate Governance, Nominating and Public Responsibilities committees.
Before becoming Apple’s CFO in 2004, Oppenheimer has served as the company’s Senior Vice President and Corporate Controller, Senior Director of Finance and Controller for the Americas, and Vice President and Controller of Worldwide Sales since he joined the company in 1996.
