William A. "Bill" Ackman (born May 11, 1966) is an American hedge fund manager and philanthropist. He is the founder and CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management LP, a hedge fund management company.


Ackman was raised in Chappaqua, New York, and is the son of Ronnie I. (nA(C)e Posner) and Lawrence David Ackman, the chairman of a New York real estate financing firm, Ackman-Ziff Real Estate Group.

He was charged the fees for copying 725,000 pages of statements regarding the financial services company in his law firm's compliance with a subpoena.
