Goldman Sachs Recognizes Tom Obermaier, RDC’s CEO, as One of the '100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs' at the 2015 Builders + Innovators Summit
New York and London, October 14, 2015 — Regulatory DataCorp, Inc. (RDC), the Trust Diligence™ leader across the Governance, Risk and Compliance (“GRC”) industry, today announced that Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing Tom Obermaier, CEO of RDC, as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs to be honored at its fourth annual Builders + Innovators Summit being held October 14th - 16th in Santa Barbara, California.
An internationally renowned risk management expert, Mr. Obermaier has transformed RDC into a recognized leader in the GRC industry. RDC’s exponential growth derives from a revolutionary SaaS platform, a one-of-a-kind integrated solution that simultaneously enhances protection of the financial system and drives exponential efficiencies for its clients. Rapid adoption of this platform across financial services, multinational corporations and social and sharing economy companies has established RDC as the industry’s disruptive force – a status Mr. Obermaier has serially achieved over a 25 year career that includes co-founding the international regulatory council, the Wolfsberg Group.
“I want to thank Goldman Sachs for this incredible honor, but the real award properly goes to our clients, who over the last six years adopted and transformed RDC’s solution,” says Tom Obermaier. “Their vision and commitment to excellence, both in terms of protecting the financial system and reducing micro and macro inefficiencies, drives everything RDC does. It is a true honor to work with them, and the 400 plus FTEs of RDC, each and everyday.”
"We are honored to recognize Tom Obermaier as one of the most intriguing entrepreneurs of 2015," said David Solomon, co-head of investment banking at Goldman Sachs. “This is an exciting time for entrepreneurs. This is the fourth year that we’ve hosted the Builders + Innovators Summit and continue to be amazed by what happens when a diverse group of seasoned and emerging business leaders -- the builders and innovators – come together to discuss how to drive innovation, create jobs, and build enduring organizations.”
For more than 145 years, Goldman Sachs has been advising and financing entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their businesses. In addition to honoring 100 entrepreneurs, the summit consists of general sessions and clinics led by Goldman Sachs experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, academics and business leaders as well as resident scholars.
