The virtual session will focus on business sustainability, and how taking a closer look at the effects of climate change is essential for all organizations to meet their financial, stakeholder, and community-related goals.

“It’s critical for our students to understand that businesses need to be concerned about their environmental impact as much as they focus on their economic impact,” said Donald Gibson, Ph.D., Dean of the O’Malley School of Business. “Alec’s experience in confronting the climate reality and developing creative approaches is essential listening.”

As global head of sustainability and energy at JPMorgan Chase & Co., Saltikoff oversees programs related to energy efficiency, sustainability, renewable energy and maximizing de-carbonization synergies for the firm’s Global Real Estate division. Saltikoff is vice chair of the World Green Building Council advisory board and is a member of the board of directors of the New York Energy Consumer Council.

In 2016 and 2019, Saltikoff was awarded the prestigious Energy New York Award in Leadership and Innovation. He is a graduate of the executive management program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management, where he was awarded an executive certificate in leadership and management. Saltikoff also holds a Master of Science degree in electrical engineering from Manhattan College. 

Sponsored by the O’Malley School of Business, the annual Ambassador Charles A. Gargano ’79 Lecture is endowed by Ambassador Charles A. Gargano ’79, the former United States Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, former chairman and commissioner of the Empire State Development Corporation, and vice chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. 

Gargano was also a member of the Manhattan College board of trustees and in 2009 established the Ambassador Charles A. Gargano ’79 Endowed Chair in Global Economics and Finance.
