A Conversation with Marty Chavez

Marty Chavez spoke with interns from around the world and reflected on his background, career path and the impact of technology on the financial industry. The session was part of ‘Explore GS,’ a summer-long speaker series for interns at the firm.

In the discussion moderated by Russell Horwitz, co-chief operating officer of the Securities Division, Marty revealed advice he’d give to his younger self: “Just keep an eye out on what you see might happen in the distant future. That forward point hardly moves. If you do that, you’ll calm down and be much more peaceful.”

He also shared his journey from studying biochemistry to working in finance, growing professionally at the firm and the moments he’s most proud of in his career.
