2011 Inductee

Tattersall is now Chairman of 1607 Capital Partners, a Richmond-based investment management company established in 2007. The firm manages over $1.5 billion in assets, specializing in investing using closed end funds.

Fred Tattersall graduated with honors from WVU's College of Business and Economics with a B.S. in Finance in 1970. He was a Senior Vice President at what is now Bank of America, and then become a partner at Lowe, Brockenbrough, Tierney and Tattersall, where he began to build an institutional fixed income division.

After a successful spinoff in 1997, which created the Tattersall Advisory Group (TAG), he was the sole proprietor of a registered investment advisor with over $6 billion in assets under management. TAG was sold to First Union Bank in 1999 and Tattersall stayed on as a CEO. When Tattersall retired from the company in 2004, the firm was managing over $18 billion in assets.

Tattersall has served as the past chair of the Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia; the University of Richmond Board as a member of the Spider Management Company committee; the Virginia Museum Board of Trustees and the WVU Foundation Board of Directors.

Tattersall's greatest contributions outside of business have been to The First Tee organization, focused on impacting young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf. Tattersall has not only served as a National Trustee, but has established the local Richmond chapter and was recently appointed to the national organization's first Board of Directors.
