The non-profit organization 100 Women in Hedge Funds announced that it has promoted its executive director to chief executive officer.
100WHF announced in a statement Monday that in Amanda Pullinger’s new role, she will be responsible for leading a staff team based in New York City. Pullinger, who was the executive director of 10WHF for the last six years, also sat on the organization's founding board and served as its president for two years previously.
During her tenure as executive director, the former principal of Aquamarine Capital Management helped increase the organization's 6 locations and 5,000 members to its current 17 members and over 12,000 members.
100WHF was formed in 2001 to organize various activities throughout the year that fit its three-pronged philanthropic mission: mentoring, women’s and family health, and education. It has since raised over $33 million for various charities.
