Haas in New York City and Boston: Haas Alumni Make Their Mark

Timothy Leach, MBA 92
Executive Vice President & Chief Investment Officer
U.S. Trust Company
New York

Tim Leach wakes up, takes a jog in Central Park, and has breakfast with his wife in a midtown cafe. Hopping the subway to SoHo, the two enjoy a matinee featuring Sigourney Weaver at a small off-Broadway theater. After an early dinner in Tribeca at Robert DeNiro's restaurant, the couple spontaneously heads to Radio City, where Bette Midler rocks the house. It's just a typical Saturday in Manhattan.

Leach, a Berkeley native, is new to the city that never sleeps, having joined U.S. Trust Co. as chief investment officer only this past May. Before that, he held a string of high-level positions in asset management with Wells Fargo, ABN Amro, US Bank, and Bank of America, which kept him moving from San Francisco, to Portland, to Chicago, and back. Despite being promoted through several mergers, Leach completed a Berkeley MBA in the early 90s through the school's evening and weekend program. As to his new stomping ground, he observes, "Although the depth of investment management talent is truly impressive, the nature of work here is similar to what goes on across the whole industry." What's unique is having easy access to hundreds of restaurants, museums, and cultural events every day. "New York is a city like no other," he says.
