Peter C. Goldmark, Jr., "Life Is a Trip Around the Bases" Independent Climate and Social Change Advisor shares his story on Global Luxury Real Estate Mastermind with Michael Valdes Podcast #169
One would think Peter Goldmark has lived many lives when reviewing his resume, and in many ways he has. At 80 years young, his wisdom and perspective are unique and global. His career trajectory took him from being Secretary of Human Services for the State of Massachusetts at the age of 30; then CEO of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey at 36. He later became President of the Rockefeller Foundation and was Chairman and CEO of the International Herald Tribune. Peter's focus now is on consulting with large companies on climate change and leaving the planet a better place than how he found it.
An incredibly impressive man, it was a true honor to sit down with him.
