The key to ensuring that a person involved with a major business stays relevant is to keep getting promoted and have a name mentioned positively. Such is the case with one Sam Tabar.
Sam Tabar has found himself in the news now, after it was learned that he was named the chief operating officer of the FullCycle Energy Fund. In a statement released upon hearing the good news, Tabar said that he was both excited and honored to be awarded the role of an operating officer at the company. He also mentioned how he looked forward to working with the fund’s senior leadership team to fulfill its goal of moving to use more environmentally friendly fuel options instead of high-cost and high pollution fuels.
Despite the big move for him, Sam Tabar is not new to the business of funding or financing, having been involved in this field for quite some time. Before launching his career off as a reputable businessman, Tabar spent his college days at Oxford University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the university with honors. After this he then went on to attend the Columbia Law School, earning a Masters of Law by the time he completed his classes, while also working as an editor for the Columbia Business Law Journal. From there, the first job he took on was working as an associate for a firm called Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP. His duties here included counseling clients on how to manage their own hedge funds while also learning about how to structure them, their investment management agreements and dealing with any employment issues that may have arisen.
After some time, Sam Tabar eventually left the firm to pursue other goals such as joining the SPARX Group Co. in 2004, becoming the managing director and co-head of the business development branch. His next big step after this turned out to be joining the Bank of America Merrill Lynch as the director for the Asia & Pacific Region and then becoming a senior associate at the Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP law firm.
