Yusuf Alireza is leaving Goldman Sachs after 19 years with the company.


He was promoted co-president of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s operations in the Asia-Pacific region outside Japan in January, along with David Ryan, with Alireza overseeing trading operations and Ryan focusing on advisory services such as arranging mergers and managing stock sales.

David Ryan will remain as president of the business, according to the memo from Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chief Operating Officer Gary D. Cohn, and Vice Chairman J. Michael Evans.
