Sam Tabar is a determined businessman that has always had a passion for law a love for strategy and an overwhelming desire to help others. Graduating from Columbia Law School was just the beginning for Mr. Tabar. Becoming an attorney and strategist in New York City allowed him to finesse his high intelligence of the law and gain real life experience. Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher &Flom LLP saw his true potential very quickly. While working for them, he gained popularity and a background, making him a prestigious and sought after asset.
However, the sky’s the limit for Mr. Tabar, and he’s already made great strides if About.me can be any indication. He set his sights on becoming Bank of America’s Merrill Lynch Director and Head of Capital Strategy. Prior to this move Sam gained a great deal of knowledge and skill by joining the SPARX Group Co./PMA Investment Advisors in 2004. Working as a director for the Asia-Pacific region was a new challenge for Sam. It allowed him to travel and see things from a different point of view, however he soon returned to his first love – law. In 2013 Mr. Tabar joined ranks with Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP. He joined as a Senior Associate, a typical day’s workload consisted of fund formation and structure, compliance issues and more.
Law and strategy is not the only interests in Sam Tabar’s life. He has made a startup company that he holds in very high regard to his investment portfolio. The name of this company is called THINX. THINX makes underwear that is considered trendy and stylish. Whenever one of these pieces are purchased part or all of the monies goes to the goal of providing sanitary pads to either American or African women. Without this help these women will have to stay home rather than go to work or school, until their menstruation period is over. He also created his own charitable campaign to continue working with the people of Africa.
This is an issue that concerns just one part of the element of poverty that Mr. Tabar feels can be so easily rectified. Such a small issue to some, can be an enormous problem for others.
He’s also an avid user of social media, with accounts on both Instagram as well as his own vimeo account.
