Wolfe Research Announces Management Hires
New York, NY — September 6, 2016 - Wolfe Research, LLC announced today that it has hired Rob Farley as a Managing Director and member of the Executive Committee. Initially, Mr. Farley will act as the Assistant to Wolfe’s Chief Operating Officer, Dave Malat; he will become Chief Operating Officer at year-end. Mr. Malat will remain Chief Financial Officer and, on January 1, 2017, he will also assume the newly-created role of President of Buy-Side Services. Wolfe Research also announced today that Chi-Man Lam has joined the firm as a Managing Director and as Wolfe’s first Chief Information Officer.
Wolfe Research’s Managing Partner Ed Wolfe commented, “Our firm’s growth has stretched our relatively small management team pretty thin. This is why Rob’s and Chi-Man’s deep and diversified experience in research, sales, and trading operations as well as robust technical and problem solving skills make them such welcome additions. Not only do Rob and Chi-Man have long track records of streamlining processes, such as research distribution and trading algorithms, but they are also exceptionally able to decipher our buy-side clients’ wants and needs. I would also note that both of these gentlemen are former colleagues and wonderful people, with impeccable reputations.”
Mr. Farley re-joins Wolfe Research after three years as a Managing Director and Institutional Salesperson at Strategas Research Partners. Prior to Strategas, he was both an institutional salesperson and senior research associate as well as one of ten founding employees of Wolfe Research. Prior to the thirteen years he spent in equity research and sales roles at Wolfe, Strategas, and Bear Stearns, Rob was an engineer for Pratt & Whitney.
Mr. Lam joins Wolfe Research after eight years at Macquarie Group, most recently as Head of Equities Technology for North America. Prior to Macquarie, he was a Managing Director, Global Equities Production Support, and Associate Director, Global Program Trading Support, at Bear Stearns. He brings to our firm a strong understanding of business, compliance, and risk control environments.
