Weinberg graduated from Princeton University and Harvard Business School. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1983 as an associate, became partner in 1992 and retired from the company in 2015. In 2016, he was hired by the investment bank Evercore Partners as executive chairman and chairman of the board. Amy Weinberg is a graduate of Smith College.

HEALTH: The Weinbergs are longtime supporters of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; Amy serves on its board of trustees. The disease has affected the family across generations and members of the extended Weinberg family together made a $15 million commitment to the Milestones to a Cure campaign in 2008. Other past grantees in the area of health include National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Martha’s Vineyard Hospital, New York University’s Langone Medical Center, and Caron Treatment Centers.
ARTS & CULTURE: Through their foundation the Weinbergs have shown a strong interest in theater, having supported New York City’s Roundabout Theatre Company and the Martha's Vineyard Theater Foundation.
