Our Investment Committee Expands
We are pleased to announce the addition of three new investment committee members.
CFA, Chief Investment Officer for a Private Family Office
Marie Young is the Chief Investment Officer at a private family office, where she leads investment strategy and portfolio construction in addition to contributing to the overall leadership of the firm. Marie started her career at Goldman Sachs.
She attended Northwestern University on a full athletic scholarship, earning her degree in Economics and competing as a distance runner in the Big Ten conference. Since first getting introduced to Lake Tahoe by her husband, a Reno native, nearly 20 years ago, Marie and her family have developed deep ties to the region. She is excited at the opportunity to give back to a place that she loves.

Before joining Beyond 12, he taught high school math for seven years at the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts and at Sugar Bowl Academy. Prior to becoming a teacher, Andrew was a portfolio manager at BlackRock, where he managed asset allocation and rebalancing strategies, multi-strategy hedge fund cash implementation, index equity portfolios, and currency hedges.
