Greg Rutstein is currently senior counsel at Bridgewater Associates, which is based in Westport and is the largest hedge fund in the world. His areas of focus are in client negotiation, fund formation and US and foreign regulatory schemes. Greg has had a successful career due to his ability to carefully think through complex legal issues and properly advise his business counterparts on the relevant cost/benefit analyses.
He is extremely open-minded but is not afraid to stand up for what he believes in. He has a deep passion for Westport and as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner, Greg will use his skillset to sensibly weigh each issue that comes before him. He is open to creative, environmentally-friendly projects that will serve the long term commercial and economic needs of Westport’s residents but will always ensure that Westport’s charm and beauty is maintained.
Greg and his wife Megan have two children, ages 5 and 3. He was attracted to Westport because of its amazing culture, beaches, restaurants, open spaces and of course, schools. He is an avid golfer and tries to play at Longshore at least once a week. He is greatly looking forward to the honor of protecting and serving the town of Westport and its residents.
