Fred Fraenkel will remain chief research officer at the Florida-based hedge fund, it said in a statement. In fact, little will change, other than his title, founder Bruce Berkowitz explained.
“Fred’s role as president is an exciting development for Fairholme. Fred’s extensive experience in the mutual fund and hedge fund space has proved invaluable to the firm. This is just a formal announcement of what has already been the reality, and it allows me to focus on what I do best—investing.”

Fraenkel joined Fairholme in 2011. He formerly worked at Beacon Trust Co., Millennium 3 Capital, ING Barings Furman Selz, Lehman Brothers, Market America Group, Prudential Securities, Goldman Sachs and E.F. Hutton, during a Wall Street career that has spanned four decades.
