Even before he became Uber’s Head of Corporate Development, Cameron Poetzscher was well-known in the world of business and finance. Throughout his 17-year career with Goldman Sachs, he served as a global investment professional and developed a reputation by supplying investment advice and guidance to many Fortune 50 companies.

Cameron Poetzscher also handled a number of pre-IPO start-ups that had been backed by some of the most prominent venture capital firms and he was a very important player in a number of very highly publicized mergers and acquisition transactions. Much of his long career has been focused on the technology, media and telecommunications sectors, which means he was involved with a number of iconic industry leaders and innovators, nit just Uber.

Before his time at Goldman Sachs, he earned an MBA with Distinction from Harvard Business School and eventually served on that school’s distinguished Finance Faculty, where he did quite a bit of research and case-writing, primarily focused on hedge funds, derivatives and liability management.
