Sam Tabar, a prominent attorney and capital strategist, started his career at Oxford University where he graduated with honors in May 2000. A year later, he became the Associate Editor for the Columbia Business Law Review.
Tabar has a wide range of experience as he has worked for several major corporations. After his graduation from Columbia, he joined Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP as an Associate. Despite Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP being one of the most prestigious law firms, he had more interest in finance, and soon after, he left Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher & Flom LLP to work for Sparx Group/PMA Investment Advisors in 2004.
Tabar was initially hired as a Counsel Member for Sparx Group/PMA Investment Advisors, but he was later promoted to Managing Director & Co-Head of Business Development. Under his leadership, he brought great success to the company as he helped manage “all facets of global marketing and investor relations for a $2 billion hedge fund.” Not only that, he also helped the company raise its assets to $1.2 billion.
After his great success at Sparx Group/PMA Investment Advisors, he became the Director and Head of Capital Strategy in 2010 for Bank of America Merrill Lynch in the Asia-Pacific regions. He later left the company and joined Adanac LLC, BVI as the Director in 2012.
Last year, Tabar was named the Chief Operating Officer for FullCycle Energy Fund, which “finances the acquisition or construction of profitable power generation plants.” In a recent interview regarding his promotion, Tabar stated, “I am excited and honoured to take on the role of COO at FullCycle Energy Fund. I look forward to partnering with our talented senior leadership team to deliver our mission of moving away from high cost, polluting fuels to lower cost and environmentally friendly fuels.”
Tabar is fluent in both English and French and is able to functionally speak Japanese. He likes to travel and host events according to About.me. For another dimension of this rising CEO, have a look at the work he’s done with AWI for African children through GoFundMe.
