Mr. Gerry Goldstein
My educational background includes a BSBA in Finance from the University of Florida and an MBA from the University of West Florida. I spent more than ten years on Wall Street in various roles within the investment banking community. In my early years, I was a short-term money trader specializing in BA’s, CD’s, Treasury Bills, and I also specialized in using the Euro Dollar futures market to hedge cash positions. I collaborated with team members to build two government-trading operations. My last position was with Merrill Lynch at its headquarters in New York on the institutional sales desk, specializing in short term money instruments.
Returning to Pensacola in the early 80’s, I started multiple businesses, including one of the largest printing businesses in the southeast, which supplied print to the US Government Printing Office. During this same time, I designed an online system to deliver printing contracts from the US Government and State agencies to printers throughout the US. Currently, I own two companies, Salomon-Goldstein Properties LLC, which specializes in commercial real estate brokerage and Goldstein Properties which owns and manages commercial buildings. I have been active in promoting economic development in both Santa Rosa and Escambia counties for more than ten years and sit on multiple boards, including Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Board of Governors at Pensacola State College, Santa Rosa Medical Center, and Rebuild Northwest Florida.
Currently, I am an adjunct professor in the MBA department at the University of West Florida as well as program coordinator for the Florida Vet Training Program sponsored by Florida Small Business Development Center state office.
