David Einhorn

David Einhorn is president of Greenlight Capital, a hedge fund, which he set up in 1996 with US$900,000. Einhorn has frequently attracted media attention for short-selling Lehman Brothers and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters stock and others, and is a critic of current investment-banking practices, saying they are biased to maximize employee compensation. In early 2013, Einhorn said Greenlight would sue Apple in a bid to make the technology giant share its huge cash pile with investors.
