Stories About Our People
One of the most high-profile women (and millennials) on Wall Street, Karen Karniol-Tambour is reshaping what leadership looks like in the investment industry. Forbes profiled her rise to one of the most important positions at Bridgewater and her unique approach to idea generation and investing.
A TechCrunch feature of Ray Dalio describes the Bridgewater founder's economic outlooks, his latest efforts to spread the gospel of principles-driven decision making, and the influence of the Beatles.

Seth is an integral member of our team working both directly with clients and also behind the scenes to continue evolving the way we support our clients and their portfolios.
Long before Angela Ruggiero (’14-’15) joined Bridgewater Associates, it became clear that she thrives on the cutting edge. At nine years old, she was cut from an all-star hockey team for being a girl, even though she was among the best players on the ice. Her father gave her a choice. “You can quit and prove them right, or you can get on the horse and prove them wrong,” she recalls him telling her. “I chose the latter, and it was the best moment of my life.”
In the ten years Erin has been with Bridgewater, she has played an integral role in shaping our understanding of markets and the global economy. We’re proud to see her recognized alongside a group of trailblazing women in the financial sector — including our own Helene Glotzer and Karen Karniol-Tambour who have recently shared the same honor.

Similar to the unconventional paths that lead our employees to Bridgewater, our CEO David McCormick spent more than 20 years in the military, government and business before embarking on his Bridgewater journey. From his service as an Army Ranger in the Gulf War and as the US Under Secretary of the Treasury for International Affairs to leading two public companies as President and CEO, David brings tremendous diversity of thought and experience to Bridgewater.
As COO of Combs Enterprises, Bridgewater alumnus Tarik Brooks (‘13-’17) unites boundless ambition with principled leadership to drive value across the portfolio of brands he oversees. Securing this dream position didn’t happen overnight. Before becoming one of Sean “Diddy” Combs’s most trusted advisors, Tarik was laying the groundwork for his career in Bridgewater’s trading department.
Business Insider's Richard Feloni discusses how Ray Dalio built Bridgewater around a unique culture of radical transparency and what success means to Ray now at this point in his career. "My concept of success is having others successful without me."
Jonathan York was recognized by Business Insider as one of eight technologists for leading “the most innovative and ambitious technology projects” at financial firms.
