Peter Briger Catapults the Growth of Fortress Investment Group through Innovative Leadership

After Peter Briger completed his undergraduate at the Princeton University, he found it wise to join the Wharton School of Business to advance his degree in Business Administration. He studied for two years before leaving for employment after the completion. The first employment that he got was by the Goldman Sachs. This was the largest finance and investment firm in New York and so working in the organization was a great milestone to kick off his career. The management of Goldman Sachs made him responsible for various operational roles that he used to prove his ability to work efficiently. He was later given more responsibilities, some of which included managerial roles. These were tough tasks, but his passion made him fit for the tasks.

While performing the responsibilities that were bestowed on him, Peter Briger decided that it would be prudent if he advanced his studies by enrolling in leadership courses. This was the best decision that he had ever made because he was trained to become a better manager and also equipped with skills in leading a team of workers. It was after this course that Peter Briger was promoted to lead the investment sector of the bank as the investment and portfolio manager. Later Briger would move to Fortress Investment Group where he would continue with his leadership career as the CEO and principal of the organization. This was back in 2002.

His transfer to Fortress Group brought a lot of transformations to the organization. To start with, the firm had been earlier operating as a private equity firm. This changed when Peter Briger introduced hedge funds and real estate as alternative asset strategies for the company. These brought a lot of improvement to Fortress Investment Group because even the assets under its management increased greatly. The number of clients that invested in the firm also skyrocketed because they could feel safer investing in an alternative asset management firm.

After Briger realizing that the company had increased in the number of clients for who it managed their assets, he proposed the opening of additional offices in various parts of the world so that they could enhance their services to their customers. They opened one headquarter in San Francisco, from where Peter Briger operates. They also opened one in Shanghai and another one in Singapore. This was a clear indication that the organization was growing and the management, on the other hand, was ready to cope with the growth.
