Richard J. Gnodde is a South African multi-millionaire financier. In 2019 he became only the second national of an African country to attend the Bilderberg (although he also has Irish citizenship).[1]


Gnodde began his career at Goldman Sachs in London in 1987. He later worked in Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong.[2] He became a managing director in 1996 and partner in 1998.[2] In 2006, he became the co-chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs International alongside Michael Sherwood.[2]

Since Sherwood's retirement in 2016, Gnodde has been the CEO of Goldman Sachs International as well as vice chairman of Goldman Sachs.[3] According to the Financial Times, he is "in sole charge of the Emea area."[4] In March 2017, Gnodde said Goldman Sachs would move jobs to the continent because of Brexit.[5]


Gnodde attended the Bilderberg for the first time in 2019.
