He became partner in 1996, but after spending 15 years with the company, Peter Briger left in 200 in order to join Fortress Investment Group.
During his years at Goldman Sachs he was part of the Global Control, Japan Executive, and Asian Management committees, as his worked focused on Asia, and in particular the debt and real estate vehicles.
