On today’s Manager Meetings, Kim Lew speaks with Stefan Kaluzny. Kim is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Columbia Investment Management Company, where she is responsible for managing the University’s $11 billion endowment. She also recently received Institutional Investor’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Stefan is a Founder and Managing Director of Sycamore Partners, a private equity firm specializing in consumer, distribution, and retail with approximately $10 billion in assets under management. Sycamore’s sector-oriented strategy focuses on partnering with management teams to improve operating profitability and strategic value in their business. To kick it off Kim and I discuss her due diligence process at Carnegie and her upcoming re-underwriting of Sycamore at Columbia, both with an eye on her longstanding friendship with Stefan.
