New charter trustee elected

Gil Caffray ’71, P’20, joins the Phillips Academy board

Peter Currie ’74, P’03, president of the Phillips Academy Board of Trustees, announced today that Gil Caffray ’71, P’20, of Greenwich, Conn., has been elected to a six-year term as a charter trustee.

A member of Andover’s Investment Committee since 2013, Caffray has served in a number of capacities to support fundraising, engagement, and volunteer efforts at the Academy. He believes deeply in the school’s need-blind admission policy, which provides youth from every quarter access to an Andover education regardless of their financial circumstances. Caffray’s voice on this priority was instrumental as he helped guide the school from 2008–2012 in roles on The Campaign for Andover Steering Committee and the Financial Aid Task Force. This year Caffray served on the search committee for the Academy’s Chief Investment Officer.

In anticipation of Knowledge and Goodness: The Andover Campaign, which launched this fall, Caffray generously hosted alumni and parents for an evening of conversation around the school’s vision and priorities for the future.

Currently chief investment officer at Tiger Management LLC, Caffray also worked at the firm from 1993–2000 as head trader, senior managing director, and member of the management committee. He left Tiger to cofound FrontPoint Partners LLC, where he was Managing Partner and co-portfolio manager of the FrontPoint Multi-Strategy Fund. Upon the acquisition of FrontPoint by Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) in 2006, Caffray became vice chairman of MSIM.

A graduate of Princeton University, Caffray and his wife, Patricia, have a son Chase and daughter Alix, who is a member of Andover’s Class of 2020.
