Fortress Names Rosenberg as Managing Director

New York-based Fortress Investment Group LLC announced that it has hired Adam Rosenberg, former global head of the gaming group at Goldman Sachs, as managing director of the firm’s gaming and leisure investment platform.

Rosenberg will be responsible for investments made by Fortress’ family of credit-related funds across the capital structure in the gaming and leisure sector.

“Adam is an outstanding addition to our credit team,” said Peter L. Briger, Jr., Fortress principal and co-chairman of the board of directors. “His depth of experience, industry relationships and ability to source, structure and execute complex transactions on a global basis will help our business to build on an already significant presence in gaming and leisure.”

Rosenberg spent 16 years in the investment banking division at Goldman Sachs, where, as part of the real estate department, he was instrumental in building and eventually running the gaming group on a global basis. Prior to that, he was at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
