The career journey of Randal Nardone is not one that can be matched with any other person. Being the CEO of Fortress Investment Group since 2013, Randal has come from miles to get to the heights he stands today. Starting with his education background, Randal Nardone had no intention whatsoever to become the financial and investment guru that he is today. He had interest in the study of nature and linguistics and hence in his college education; he pursued English and Biology as arts in his undergraduate. Later, he acquired a Juris Degree in law at the Law School of Boston University before joining Thacher Profit & Wood Company to start his career.
With time, Randal Nardone grew some interest in the financial management field, and so he decided to change his career to become a finance and investment manager. This saw him pursue some supplementary courses in the investment field that equipped him with the right acumen and proficiency that was necessary to work in the finance industry. Later, he joined the Union Bank of Switzerland where he worked in various high profile capacities. This gained him a lot of popularity in the industry and commanded respect from any player in the investment market.
Despite all the respect and the reputation that Nardone had earned working for the largest banks and financial organizations in the United States, he still felt that something was missing to make the realization of his dreams complete. This was when he decided to join hands with Wes Edens and Rob Kauffman to form a private equity firm, Fortress Investment Group. Immediately after the establishment of the organization, Randal and the other three founders became the co-principals of the firm. A Force of Innovation: Two Decades of Fortress Investment Group

Today, Fortress Group is among the largest investment management organizations globally. full link
