We are thrilled to have been a part of the TIFF Board and leadership team’s well thought out succession planning initiatives for the next generation. It was an exciting journey, culminating with Kane Brenan’s appointment as the third President in TIFF’s history, following the review of a wide range of accomplished senior leaders in the investment industry. It was gratifying to have played a small part in supporting TIFF’s important mission as a cooperative-style organization where non-profit foundations lacking sufficient internal resources can pool endowment funds to access the innovative investment techniques being utilized by the largest foundations and universities.

Brenan had been with Goldman Sachs for over 20 years, was a partner in the firm, and had worked with some of Goldman’s largest pension and endowment clients in an outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO) capacity.

In a joint statement, Neal Triplett (Chair of the TIFF Board and President of Duke University’s endowment office) and Dick Flannery said: “We are delighted to add someone with Kane Brenan’s extraordinary qualifications to the TIFF senior management team. His knowledge and experience, when combined with his distinctive ‘values first’ ethos, will serve TIFF’s non-profit members well for many years to come.”
