Biography of Edward Lampert 
Edward S. 'Eddie' Lampert (born July 19, 1962) He previously served as a director of AutoZone, Inc. from July 1999 to October 2006.

Early life and education
Lampert was born in 1962 to Dolores Lampert and Floyd M. Lampert. His mother was a housewife. His father was a senior partner in the law firm of Lampert & Lampert in New York City. He has a younger sister Tracey.

Lampert's grandmother was a passive investor and big fan of Louis Rukeyser's Wall Street Week television program. She instilled in him an interest in investing. His mother would later recall that young Eddie would sit with his grandmother reviewing and evaluating the performance of her stock picks in the daily newspaper.

Lampert's father died at the age of 47 leaving the family impoverished and forcing his mother to take a job as a clerk at Saks Fifth Avenue. His mother would later say: 'Eddie really assumed the responsibility, knowing that life had changed and we had to accomplish something by ourselves now.' and Phi Beta Kappa.

Career
In July 1984, Lampert worked as an intern at Goldman Sachs, and then worked in the firm's risk arbitrage department from March 1985 to February 1988. While there, he worked directly with Robert Rubin. When Lampert decided to go out on his own, Rubin warned him it would be a bad career decision.

In April 1988, Lampert left the bank to form ESL Investments, based in Greenwich, Connecticut (the name ESL derives from Lampert's initials). Richard Rainwater, whom Lampert had met on Nantucket Island, gave him $28 million in seed money and introduced him to clients, such as David Geffen.

Lampert's investment style can best be described as 'concentrated value', often focusing on the retail sector. Lampert typically holds his investments for several years and usually has between three and fifteen stocks in his portfolio. His investment style has drawn comparisons to the financier Warren Buffett. In 2006, Lampert was the richest person in Connecticut with a net worth of $3.8 billion.cite web | title=The 400 Richest Americans (Connecticut Rankings) |
