Seeking Alpha mourns the loss of Eli Hoffmann, beloved manager, friend and guiding light. Please read the testaments, below.
I am Seeking Alpha's COO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, now known as Breaking News, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO. In March 2020, David Jackson, our founder, stepped back in as CEO and appointed me COO.I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills. (Note: Until further notice, I am ONLY working from Jerusalem, with all my kids standing on my head. I look forward to getting back to a more normal schedule together with everyone else.)
