People moves: Jehan Ilahi promoted to head of IR at Goldman Sachs

Other IR changes at Birkenstock and Sleep Cycle

Goldman Sachs has appointed Jehan Ilahi, currently managing director and head of equity IR, as its new head of investor relations. He will take over from Carey Halio, who has been named the investment bank’s global treasurer.

‘As a tenured leader of the firm with experience working in several of our divisions and partnering with leaders across the organization to drive our strategic priorities forward, Carey will bring important expertise and perspectives to her new role,’ says Goldman CEO David Solomon in an internal memo, according to CNBC. ‘She will continue to oversee our firm-wide strategy team on an interim basis.’

Ilahi has worked in IR and strategy at Goldman for five and a half years. Prior to that, he was managing director in the financial institutions group at JPMorgan Chase. He is also a board member for the nonprofit Food Education Fund.

In other IR people moves, Birkenstock, the German footwear business, has appointed Megan Kulick as director of IR.

Kulick has more than 20 years of experience across IR, sell-side and buy-side roles, notes a company statement. Most recently, she was head of IR at cannabis and medical marijuana company Cresco Labs.

‘It was extremely important for us to fill the position with an IR professional who not only has a high reputation in the market and an excellent professional background, but also speaks the language of the Street and whom we trust to convey our unique equity story in the most credible and effective way,’ says Oliver Reichert, CEO of Birkenstock, in the statement.

Nasdaq Stockholm-listed Sleep Cycle, which focuses on AI-driven sleep analysis, has named Elisabeth Hedman as its new CFO and head of IR, effective June 1. Hedman joins from TimeEdit where she was also CFO.

Hedman’s ‘track record of spearheading financial operations and catalyzing growth not only demonstrates her ability as a finance leader but also underscores her as a strategic visionary perfectly suited for Sleep Cycle’s ambitious journey ahead,’ says Erik Jivmark, CEO of the company, in a statement.
