For nine years, Kirk Rimer of Goldman Sachs in Dallas, was a naval aviator. After receiving his BA in political science from the University of Missouri in 1980, he joined the navy, where he trained to become an aviator. He held this position from 1981 until 1990. Remarkably, during this time as an aviator he also earned an MBA from Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business, finishing in 1989.
This unusual combination of interests certainly served him well, as Rimer joined Goldman Sachs in 1989. Stationed in Dallas, Rimer worked as the Managing Director and the Southwest Regional Manager for the Private Wealth Management Division of Goldman Sachs, where he still is today.
Rimer recently participated in Austin College’s Williams Executive-in-Residence Lecture program. Last September he presented at The Global Investment Landscape: Then and Now at the Mabee Hall of Wright Campus Center.
