We welcome William Robalino, our newest “Padrino” and member of our Editorial Advisory Board!

I’ve known Will for quite some time through common activities and organizations. He is a dedicated professional to his industry and his Latino community -although, as he tells us in the video below, it was not always his priority.

With a resonant background in Finances, Will has also volunteered in national professional organizations, bringing to them his extraordinary networking abilities and enthusiasm to generate results.

As the Vice President of Prudential’s Annuity Finance Division, a firm he joined in April 2015, William Robalino partnered with management to prepare and communicate results to senior management, supported the review and oversight of Prudential’s captive reinsurer, assisted in the development of the Resolution Plan and other Fed Supervision requests as well as supported other business initiatives including Capital Management and Planning & Analysis. William also served on Prudential’s Hispanic Heritage Network as an Executive Advisor.

William led ALPFA NY chapter as their President from 2011 to 2015.  During his time on the executive board, the chapter grew from 1,200 members to over 3,300 members, tripled the number of corporate partners and professional development programs.

William is also a member of the MBA CFO Stern NYU recruiting team, the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) and sat on their Corporate Advisory Board.  An active member of Sponsors for Education Opportunity (SEO), he frequently mentors Career Program students during the summer.

William Robalino earned his B.S. in Public Accounting from Pace University in 1993. After graduating from Pace, he started his career at JPMorgan in their Accounting Management Training Program. He remained at JPMorgan until 1996 at which point he joined Lehman Brothers in their Credit Derivatives Product Control Function. A year later, William was given the opportunity to move to Tokyo, Japan; leading the Liquid Market Product Control Functions: Interest Rate Swaps & Options, Japanese Governments & Financing, Foreign Exchange and Futures.

William returned to the United States in 2000. He continued to work at Lehman Brothers and furthered his education by receiving his M.B.A. from New York University’s Stern Business School in 2006, with a concentration in Finance and Management. After 11 years at Lehman Brothers, William joined UBS in 2007 where he supported the Rates and Commodities businesses as their CFO in the Americas, earning his six sigma green belt while leading numerous efficiency projects. In 2013, William was presented with a great opportunity to oversee and help expand the Global Market’s division at BNY as their CFO.

We are excited to have Will as a member of our team and we look forward to great initiatives together! Thanks for giving your time, enthusiam and your expertise to our Latina entrepreneurs, corporate and independent professionals!
