After more than eighteen years at Citadel, Adam Cooper has made the decision to retire at the end of February 2017.

Ken Griffin thanked Adam for his leadership and counsel over the past 18 years, saying: “Adam has made many valuable contributions in helping build Citadel into one of the world’s leading financial institutions. I am grateful to Adam for his leadership on so many fronts and wish him the best over the years to come.”

Shawn Fagan, current Senior Deputy General Counsel, has been named General Counsel of our hedge fund business effective immediately. Over the past decade, Shawn has played a critical role in helping the firm address a wide range of legal issues, from addressing corporate matters to working with our regulators.

We thank Adam for his nearly two decades of dedication to Citadel. We wish him and his family the very best.
