Paul Groncki, PhD

An economist and student of consumer behavior by training, Paul has been a marketing professional for 30 years. Most recently he was the principal of a marketing, strategy, and business development group using creative problem solving techniques to help clients identify and prioritize their complex research and marketing needs. He has served as treasurer on the Board of Trustees for the Creative Education Foundation, is on the Board of Trustees for Hudson Guild — a 100-year-old+ settlement house in New York City, facilitates not-for-profits and serves as the New York Hub Leader for Facilitators Without Borders, is on the faculty of the Creative Problem Solving Institute, and serves on numerous community organizations.

Paul has helped firms such as J. P. Morgan, HSBC, Bankers Trust, and Citibank develop marketing strategies targeting the sophisticated banking and investment management needs of affluent and private banking clients in the U.S., Japan, and Europe. Before entering the financial services industry, Paul was an associate scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory where he modeled energy supply and demand responses to changes in energy pricing and availability using large-scale econometric and linear programming models. He holds an MA and doctorate in economics from SUNY Stony Brook.
