Peter K. Tomozawa, a former partner and managing director at Goldman Sachs & Company, has joined The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii’s Board of Trustees, the organization announced today.
“We are honored that Peter has decided to join our board. He has the business experience and personal commitment that you look for in a trustee,” said Kenton Eldridge, chair of the Conservancy’s Hawaiʻi Board.
“For the past six months, he and his family have been volunteering in the field with us,” added Suzanne Case, the Conservancy's Hawaiʻi executive director. “Almost every week they don wet suits and pull invasive algae off the reef in Kāneʻohe Bay.”
Tomozawa, who serves as a commissioner for the State of Hawaiʻi Charter School Commission, retired from Goldman Sachs in July 2010 after having spent 17 years with the investment banking firm. He was named a managing director in 2000 and a partner in 2006.
From 2004 to 2010, Tomozawa was global head of Foreign Exchange Sales and managed the distribution of FX products through the New York, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong offices. He was also responsible for the product management and distribution of the firm's FX electronic trading platform.
Tomozawa served on Goldman's Credit Policy Committee. He was a board member of CLSAS, a foreign exchange trade aggregation service company, and a member of the Federal Reserve Bank Foreign Exchange Committee, where he helped draft the 2008 update and revisions to the "Guidelines for Foreign Exchange Trading Activities" document. In 2012, he was a board member of FXAlliance, Inc. where he served on the compensation and transactions committees.
Prior to being an investment banker, Tomozawa worked at IBM and at a computer software start-up firm. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan and a Masters in Business Administration degree in Finance from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
In addition to his responsibilities on the Hawaiʻi Charter School Commission, Tomozawa serves on the Hawaiʻi board of the American Red Cross.
He and his wife, Donna LeDuc, live in Honolulu. They have five children.
