Starting and steering business to success is a feat that calls for an individual with a unique set of skills and character traits. This is something that Randal Nardone has been proving ever since he and his counterparts established Fortress.
Randal began his journey to being a billion dollar man at the esteemed University of Connecticut where he graduated with two B.A’s in English and Biology. He, later on, attended Boston University from where he earned a JD and began his career in law at Thacher, Proffitt, and Wood. Randal practiced law for a while but soon realized that it wasn’t his cup of tea and made a leeway to finance by learning about finance management.

His first job in this realm was at Blackrock where he had a brief stint and made a transition to UBS. Again here he also had a short stint and realized that he craved for something bigger and being employed would limit him from reaching it. He therefore resigned and came together with Wes Edens and Rob Kauffman to establish Fortress. Since then he has been part and parcel of the company and has brought it huge wins thanks to his great leadership abilities.
Randal Nardone is a man whose leadership skills go beyond Fortress as he is still influential in the running of other finance firms. These include Springleaf Holdings where he has been serving as the director for quite a long time. He also serves the same role at Brookdale Senior Living and is an integral part of companies like New Residential Investment Corp and Eurocastle among many others.
Randal Nardone’s contributions to the finance sector have also been fruitful on his part as he was featured on Forbes Billionaires list as one of the most affluent self-made billionaires with a net worth of over $1 billion and ranked #557.
One trait that sets Randal Nardone apart from most leaders in the corporate world is his ability to remain optimistic even when things are going south. For instance, following the recent acquisition of Fortress by Softbank, Randal Nardone said that this would help Fortress increase its footprint in finance as Softbank boasts a diverse business network which Fortress can maximize on and expand.
