Jack Rosenblum

Jack Rosenblum
Chairman

Jack Rosenblum founded The Rosenblum Companies and today serves as chief strategic advisor after 35+ years in the commercial real estate development business.

Born and raised in Cohoes, NY, he is a graduate of Albany College of Pharmacy. He founded an institutional pharmacy business in Rochester that quickly expanded to serve over 2,000 patients. To house his growing business, Mr. Rosenblum personally supervised the construction of a new building and leased surplus space to four other companies, thus beginning his career as a developer and commercial landlord. After selling his pharmaceutical business and relocating back to the Albany area, he began developing and managing real estate full time and founded Rosenblum Development Corporation in 1979.

Jack was the first to develop professional office space on the Washington Avenue Extension corridor in and proximate to what is now the company's Corporate Plaza location – an eight building complex – as well as Great Oaks Office Park, the premier outer metropolitan office park in the Capital Region. He is a licensed real estate broker and has been a hands-on participant in every single aspect of the business including site development, construction, leasing and property management.

Today, he and his wife divide their residency between Albany and South Florida. He enjoys golf, travel and spending time with his five grandchildren.
