The brilliant lawyer and private venture capitalist has juggled between legal practice, wedge fund management and philanthropy. With Sam Tabar’s recent appointment as the Chief Operating Officer of FullCycle Energy Fund, his star seems to keep shining in the foreseeable future.
Sam’s Corporate Career
A shrewd strategist, the Columbia Law School and Oxford alumnus has being overseeing budget approaches for most of the firms he has worked for. When he made his foray into the financial world, his first major posting was at Sparx Group as the co-head responsible for promotion. This is the leading independent fund in the Pacific Asia. His appointment demanded that he manages all aspects of the firm’s international advertising effort. He worked with gusto and met all targets set by the management. He is credited for improving the visibility of the firm at international level.
After Sparx, Tabar joined Merrill Lynch, the investment arm of the Bank of America as the head of investment policy.

Thereafter, he worked as a legal practitioner at Skadden, Arps, Meagher, Slate and Flom. He also had a stint at Schulte, Roth and Zabel. He leaned heavily towards commercial law and this is what might have prompted him to make inroads into the fiscal world.
