How consistency and patience made Peter Briger successful.

Peter Briger like every young individual back in his younger days hoped that he would one day have an impact in whatever field he chose to join. He would later on develop a keen interest in finance and join Princeton University to study for a bachelor of Arts before moving to the Wharton school of business to pursue his MBA. This investment in education would be one of the key ingredients that would push his future success. He got his first job at Goldman Sachs, where he worked his way up with the determination of one day becoming a partner. His determination would pay off faster than he had anticipated by 1996 he was a partner and, on his way, up. At this time Peter Briger would begin to head various departments as well as become a member of several committees. These committees would serve as a learning curve for him and by the time he left Goldman Sachs, he was quite proficient in Asian investments. He had worked with the Japanese executive committee that was tasked with the assessment and understanding of Japanese investments, the rules and regulations governing them as well as the opportunities that existed. When Peter Briger moved to The Fortress investment Group he would take a direction almost similar to the one he took at Goldman Sachs. He joined management straight away, but was tasked with establishing the credit business on behalf of the group. This was no easy task, but Briger was up to the task as he already had done something almost similar before. His success in establishing this new line of business would see him join the board in 2006. The following year he was part of the team tasked with the company’s initial public offering. This was at a time when private equity firms were not really listing. The success of the IPO spoke volumes about Peter Briger’s capabilities and would soon be elected to chair the board of directors. In 2017 he was appointed Co-CEO as head of the groups San Francisco office. Today this office heads the Credit department of the entire group.
