Who is Mason Morfit?
Mason Morfit, 44, is the CEO of investment firm ValueAct Capital. Brewster and Morfit first appeared to be together in 2020 after she revealed that she flew to see him days after she filed for divorce. She has now separated from Andrew Form, who was then her husband. “Mason and I had met once, while we were both still married, four years ago,” she wrote in a Glamour essay in June. “I took note of Mason; he was cute, charming. Shortly after that lunch I started following him on Instagram.”
“Four days after I separated from Andrew, I was on a plane to San Francisco to visit this man I had met only once but who had stayed on my mind I knew he'd been separated for two years. I wanted to see him, to confirm whether the image I’d built up in my mind matched reality. What I got was far more than I expected," she said, adding that she is already mentally preparing for her second wedding. “But I stop myself when I get that rushed, buzzy feeling," she added.
Morfit is best known for his dealings with Microsoft in the business world. When he was in his late 30s, Morfit was named to Microsoft’s board of directors and was the youngest member of the board. In 2014, Morfit was honored with the #10 spot on Fortune’s “40 Under 40” list. He served on Microsoft's board till 2017. Part of Morfit's childhood was spent overseas as one of his parents was a U.S. State Department diplomat. His LinkedIn profile says that he earned a bachelor’s degree in “political economy” in 1997. In an interview for a Sidwell Friends alumni magazine, Morfit talked about his interest in the intertwining of politics and economics.
In the interview, he said, "My favorite courses were things like Analysis of Capitalism. The Berlin Wall and Soviet Union had crumbled, so a lot of economists were trying to help Yeltsin rebuild the Soviet economy. Economics is basically applying mathematics to psychology. How do you mathematically model how a human being is going to behave? I wrote a paper in college on Mahatma Gandhi’s economic theories. Unlike traditional Western economics, where it’s supply-demand curves and everything is built on the idea that consuming more is better, Gandhi saw a point of diminishing returns. He said that community matters and your fellow man matters. It upends all of the equations and mathematics of economics. That’s an example of the light bulb going on in my head."
In September 2004, Morfit married Anna-Mieke Ortiz. The couple has four children. Now estranged, the duo still appears to own various properties together.
