When you’re the top deputy of the world’s richest man, your job is both enviable and unbelievable at the same time. For Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, the job is handled by a secretive man named Jared Birchall.
Birchl, 48, has reportedly been working for Musk for the past six years and has become his right-hand man and the most trusted brainchild to manage his massive net worth of nearly $265 billion.
Jared Birchl is regarded as one of the best operators, citing the people he has collaborated with over the years. As Musk’s wealth manager, he manages the billionaire’s family office accession. He also oversees the personal endeavors of the engineer-business magnate.
Birchall has been described as the go-to ‘fixer’ for Musk and is considered the principal architect of the headline-grabbing Twitter acquisition deal. He was part of a small group involved in key negotiations on Wall Street to secure the deal. He is said to be the key point of contact for large deals involving Musk’s assets or objectives.
Who is Jared Birchle?
Birchal studied at Brigham Young University in the US. He began his career in 1999 with a short stint with the financial giant Goldman Sachs Group Inc. He joined Morgan Stanley in 2010. He was reportedly described by a longtime acquaintance as a skilled money manager for the wealthy if not a ‘superstar’.
In 2016, Birchall went ahead and joined Musk. As the WSJ reports, he is a practicing member of the religious and cultural group Mormons. He doesn’t drink or smoke. According to the report, Birchal was raised in a family of singers and dancers who moved to California under the name “The Birchal Family Singers”. He handles most of the fortune owned by Musk.
