A top executive at Carl Icahn’s eponymous holding company is set to step down after eight years working with the billionaire activist hedge fund manager.
Keith Meister plans to resign as vice chairman and principal executive officer of Icahn Enterprises, which is controlled by Icahn’s hedge fund, Icahn Associates. The listed, New York-based firm boasts seven business lines, and Meister frequently served on the boards of directors of companies in which Icahn owns a stake. Meister also served as a senior managing director of Icahn Capital.
Icahn said in a statement that Meister was resigning to pursue other opportunities.
"I have enjoyed tremendously working with Carl Icahn over the past 8 years,” Meister said. “I appreciate all of the opportunities that I have had and look forward to staying in touch with him and the Icahn team.”
