Whitebox Advisors president and chief operating officer Jonathan Wood is stepping down from his roles to focus on charitable work.

In a letter to investors obtained by eVestment, Minneapolis-based Whitebox CEO Andrew Redleaf explained that Wood will spend full-time building Charity Aware, an organization he started two years ago that aims to encourage young adults develop a passion for helping others.

Redleaf also said in the letter that Wood, who has worked at Whitebox for over a decade, will retain his “economic interest” in the firm and remain on its Board of Directors.
