Formula 4 – That’s Living, with Rocco Orlando


In this episode of Money Tales, our guest is Rocco Orlando. Rocco tells us that when he was coming out of college, he noticed he was an entitled pretentious person who was taking shortcuts through life because so many doors were open to him. In short, Rocco was becoming someone he disliked. His antidote was to join the army. While Rocco qualified as an officer, he chose to enlist as a private. This allowed him to start at the bottom with the intention of growing up. His plan worked and he gained valuable money insights along the way.

Rocco began his career as a military officer, serving 10 years in the United States Army, most notably as a Captain with the elite paratrooper unit, the 173d Airborne, based out of Bamberg, Germany. He served multiple combat tours in the Afghanistan theater, sharpening his leadership abilities, while also developing a strong skillset for excelling in high pressure environments.

Over the course of his professional career, Rocco has been involved in the project management of over 5 million square feet of office space across the country, ranging from complete ground up construction projects to managing and overseeing landlord turnkey solutions. Rocco’s project and construction management expertise ranges from the Fortune 500 to regionalized occupiers.

Rocco’s most recent success has been managing the overall national expansion project for one of the fastest growing insurance companies in the world, with more than 30 projects closed over the last 6 quarters alone.
