Navigating Risk Management during a Global Crisis with Sam Pallotta


About this episode

I’m very excited to be joined by Sam Pallotta, the Chief Risk Officer & Treasurer at Rockefeller Group, on this episode of The Treasury Career Corner podcast. Sam is an accomplished executive with a successful track record of providing financial expertise in order to achieve business objectives.

Since 2007, he has served as Treasurer for the Rockefeller Group. Rockefeller Group is an American private company based in New York City, primarily involved in real estate operations in the United States. Beginning in the mid-1970s, Rockefeller Group applied its distinctive brand of quality to develop signature office complexes across the country, and the company began acquisitions and formations of new business lines complementary to its office development and management core.

Rockefeller Group is one of the most trusted names in real estate. As a leading developer, owner and operator, they are known for pioneering large-scale urban mixed-use development. For 90 years, the company has been trusted for its financial strength, stability and vision, and today remains committed to the selective development of innovative, high-quality properties that create long-term economic and civic value.

For nearly nine decades, Rockefeller Group has initiated some of the most memorable endeavours in American commercial real estate. Their proud tradition of real estate excellence began with the vision and development of the world’s finest urban business and entertainment complex – Rockefeller Centre.
