Bill Ackman was born May 11, 1966 and is an American hedge fund manager. He is the founder and CEO of hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management LP.

In 1992, Ackman founded with a fellow Harvard graduate the investment firm Gotham Partners, which made small investments in public companies. In 1995, Ackman's reputation was enhanced when he partnered with the insurance and real estate firm Leucadia National to bid for Rockefeller Center. Although they did not win the deal, the high profile nature of the bid caused investors to flock to Gotham Partners growing it to $500 million in assets by 1998. In 2002, Ackman began winding down Gotham Partners which had become entrenched in litigation with various outside shareholders who also owned an interest in the same companies which Gotham invested. A 2003 investigation of Gotham's trading practices by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer found no wrongdoing.

 

In August 2013, Ackman’s two year campaign to transform the department store J.C. Penney came to a sudden end after he decided to step down from the board following an argument with fellow board members.

Ackman has given to charitable causes such as the Center for Jewish History to preserve Jewish genealogy where he spearheaded a successful effort to retire their $30 million in debt personally contributing $6.8 million. In a press release, the Ackman family stated, "We want our children to know, not only their living relatives, but those representing past generations for a greater connection to their family and ancestral origin and heritage." This donation made with that of Bruce Berkowitz, founder of Fairholme Capital Management, and Joseph Steinberg, president of Leucadia National, were the three largest individual gifts that the center has ever received. 

Ackman's foundation donated $1.1 million to the Innocence Project in New York City and Centurion Ministries in Princeton, N.J. The two groups are dedicated to investigating the cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted.
