Early life and education
Raised in a Jewish family, Mandel is a 1974 graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy and a 1978 graduate of Dartmouth College where he majored in government and was a member of the Psi Upsilon fraternity. He also has an M.B.A. from Harvard University.
From 1980 to 1984, he worked at Mars & Co as a senior consultant and then from 1984 to 1990, he worked as a consumer-retail analyst at Goldman, Sachs & Co. before working as a consumer analyst and eventually managing director at Tiger Management, a hedge fund founded by Julian Robertson. In 1997, he left Tiger and founded his own hedge fund, Lone Pine Capital LLC (named after a Dartmouth College pine tree that survived an 1887 lightning strike).
He is chairman of Dartmouth's board of trustees and also serves on the National Board of Directors at Teach for America. He founded two charitable foundations: the Zoom Foundation and the Lone Pine Foundation.
