“In my years of facing off and working with many talented PMs and COOs [at Morgan Stanley], I would hold Rich Bello out as among the most effective in the business. Ultimately Blue Ridge Capital was one of our favorite and most successful clients. I would credit Rich’s genuine, empathetic, and balanced approach to working with others as a key to his success. He built an enduring trust in a business where trust can be fleeting. … Arootah can find a way to raise your game.”
