Meaningful relationships are what helped Bridgewater grow and evolve from a two-bedroom apartment in 1975 to a business with over 1,500 employees today. A special display was created to mark the year each person joined our company.
To kick off the evening, the entire community gathered under one tent to learn about our early days.
Friends from our past returned to celebrate and tell stories of what they saw and learned along the way. Here, former COO Giselle Wagner, who was with us from 1988 to 2007, shared the stage with close friend and current CIO Bob Prince.
Members of the community stood up to reflect on our shared history throughout the evening.
Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio listened to his friends and colleagues share memories.
Let the party begin! Soon, everyone took to the lawn to enjoy the summer night air, flowing libations, and tasty BBQ.
Bridgewater’s own entertained us! Guitarist Rob Fried — who’s been here for over 25 years — performed with The Deleveragers.
Friends ate, toasted, played games, and danced.
The celebration stretched long into the night — cheers to 40 years!
