Bentley de Beyer to Become an Advisory Director

Bentley de Beyer, global head of Human Capital Management (HCM) and a member of the Management Committee, will retire from the partnership at the end of this year and become an advisory director, effective in January 2023.

As global head of HCM, Bentley has served the firm with the utmost dedication and developed and implemented our people strategy over the past several years. He has led our efforts to evolve our approach to performance management, enhance succession planning and meaningfully advance our aspirational diversity goals, and helped create an environment where listening via regular pulse surveys, manager engagement and coaching became more ingrained in how we operate as a high-performance organization. 

At the same time, Bentley partnered closely with us and leaders across the firm during the pandemic as we focused on ensuring that all of our people and their families received the support they needed, in line with our “people first” approach.

Bentley has served on the firm’s Global Inclusion and Diversity Committee, Enterprise Risk Committee and Partnership Committee.

Bentley first joined the firm in 1999 in the Investment Banking Division in the Sydney office. He rejoined Goldman Sachs in early 2020 as a partner in HCM in New York.

Outside the firm, Bentley serves on the Board of Directors for The Trevor Project, a nonprofit whose mission is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning young people.

We want to personally thank Bentley for his leadership and significant contributions to the firm throughout his tenure, as well as his unwavering commitment to our people. We look forward to benefitting from his continued counsel in his capacity as an advisory director.
