New York native Valentino Carlotti is back in the U.S. to head up Goldman Sachs’ new Institutional Client Group. The exec spent five years as president of the bank in Brazil. Now, in the latest installment of Black Enterprise‘s Cool Jobs series, Carlotti talks with the site about his new position, which is playing a major part in the company’s sales and trading division. That division brought in 57 percent of the bank’s first quarter revenue.
“My new role allows me to leverage my knowledge of how to navigate the entire firm, and the strong relationships developed across the firm with the product and functional skills I have built over my career,” he says in the interview.
While the number of African Americans on Wall Street is “small,” Carlotti says it’s definitely an industry worth pursuing. To learn more, visit BlackEnterprise.com.
