In 1975, Rotella acquired his Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the prestigious Stony Brook’s State University of New York. He, later on, went to gain his MBA in Information Systems/Finance from the renowned State University of New York in 1978. Stephen Rotella in his entire adult life has been involved in business activities. Although been famous for his function as the CEO of StoneCastle Cash Management LLC, Rotella is associated with various other well-established businesses, and these include JP Morgan Chase and Company, WMIH Corporation, and the school he graduated from, the University of New York and Stony Brook.
Stephen Rotella who is now well established was at the time faced with a bit of disputation. In 2011, when Rotella was functioning as the COO and the president of Washington Mutual Inc., the company was litigated for gross negligence by the FDIC. In an official complaint, the FDIC put forward that Rotella and CEO Kerry Killinger had concentrated on short-term gains that would increase their own compensation, with a reckoning neglect for WaMu’s longer term safety and soundness. When Killinger was apoplectic and issued various public statements concerning the matter, Rotella only pointed out on his deject that his wife and family would now be pulled along through the media.
Finally, Rotella alongside Killinger and David Schneider, a business partner, settled for a $64 million settlement, which was arguably a far cry from the amount that FDIC had initially sued for. After the incident with Washington Mutual Inc. Rotella moved on to proceed with his business career. In 2015, Rotella was elected to the LIFT’s National Board, and he currently holds the position of CEO of StoneCastle Cash Management LLC. He committed his free time to charitable acts by assisting the underprivileged with a special concern in home ownership.
