Feb 22 2012 | 2:07pm ET

A top Goldman Sachs hedge fund executive is retiring from the firm.

C. Howard Wietschner helped set up Goldman's hedge fund advisory group in 2007. But after 18 years with the firm, the 44-year-old has decided to call it quits, the bank told employees in an internal memo.

Wietschner joined Goldman in 1994 from law firm Weil Gotshal & Manges. During his career at the firm, the partner ran both Goldman's U.S. convertible desk and retail value sales trading operations.

Bloomberg News first reported Wietschner's departure.
