Ron Rudolph was drawn to Point nearly 8 years ago after reading a small article on Point in the Advocate. Shortly thereafter he contacted founders Bruce and Carl to see how he and his employer, Citi, could get involved with this inspiring and important cause. Since then, Ron was instrumental in getting Citi’s charitable foundation to become the first corporate sponsor of Point. Since 2004, Citi has provided Point with an annual grant. Citi was honored with the Point Inspiration Award at the 2010 NY Point Event.
Ron is a Managing Director in Citi’s Global Structured Solutions Group on the fixed income trading floor. A tax attorney by training, he developed and currently heads a tax residual liability trading business. Ron continues to create and implement unique structures and businesses tailored to either client needs or for Citi’s principal book. Ron is an openly out gay employee of Citi and has spoken on many business panels to mentor and recruit talented gay individuals.
In 1999 Ron helped to found and fund a non-profit pre-school program in Montclair, NJ and he supervised the management and operation of the school for eight years.
In 2008, Ron accepted the role of Point Regent where he co-chairs the Finance Committee.
Ron lives in New Jersey with his children Matthew, Spencer and Andrew and their giant schnauzer, Vulcan.
Ron and his family have participated in two of the Rosie O’Donnell-sponsored R Family cruises for gay families and support various organizations like the HRC, SAGE, Garden State Equality and Lambda Families. Currently Ron is actively working with other gay leaders in the beach community of Ocean Grove, NJ (where he has a home) to reverse church-sponsored bigotry and bridge the differences.
Ron enjoys skiing, scuba diving and traveling; he is an avid swimmer and biker and is currently learning to surf.
Ron is a graduate of Rutgers University and the New York Law School and is a licensed attorney in New York and New Jersey.
