 Rosie Rios Biography

Rosie Rios is the CEO of Red River Associates, a real estate investment management consulting firm. She served as the 43rd Treasurer of the United States and was the CEO of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the U.S. Mint, including Fort Knox. She also initiated and led the efforts to place a portrait of a woman on U.S. currency for the first time in over a century. Upon her resignation in 2016, she received the Hamilton Award, the highest honor bestowed in the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Rosie was the longest serving Senate-confirmed Treasury official beginning with her time on the Treasury/Federal Reserve Transition Team in November 2008 at the height of the financial crisis. Following her tenure, she was appointed as a Visiting Scholar at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University with a focus on Millennials and Post-Millennials.

In her role as Treasurer of the United States, Rosie’s day-to-day responsibilities included overseeing all currency and coin production and consumer payment policies with almost 4,000 employees in eight facilities nationwide and an annual budget of approximately $5 billion. In the first five years of her tenure, she saved over $1 billion by implementing efficiencies and innovative concepts while meeting increased production demand and increasing employee morale at record levels. She also served as the first-ever Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on issues of community development, public engagement, counterfeit deterrence, and Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institution Fund/New Market Tax Credit programs. Her signature appears on a worldrecord $1.7 trillion out of the $2 trillion in circulation worldwide.

Rosie’s entire career has focused on real estate finance, economic development and urban revitalization in both the public and private sectors. Prior to her presidential appointment in Treasury, she was Managing Director of Investments for MacFarlane Partners, a $22 billion real estate investment management firm based in San Francisco. In this capacity, she was responsible for several of MacFarlane Partners’ urban investment activities including sourcing, underwriting and structuring prospective investments and all relevant due diligence as well as overseeing projects during their development, stabilization and disposition. Other real estate/urban revitalization activities include the Director of Economic Development and/or Redevelopment for multiple cities such as Oakland, Fremont, San Leandro and Union City. She also consulted with the City of San Francisco Public Utility Commission and reported to the Assistant General Manager for Infrastructure on one of the nation’s largest capital improvement programs. She also served as a strategic advisor on behalf of the Washington D.C. City Administrator for the redevelopment of the Anacostia Waterfront. Her first job following college was as a Commercial Property Underwriter for General Reinsurance Corporation.

Rosie is a graduate of Harvard University and was selected as the first Latina in Harvard’s 384-year history to have a portrait commissioned in her honor. The portrait was unveiled in Winthrop House in 2019. She currently serves on the board of American Family Insurance, Fidelity Charitable Trust, the Schlesinger Council at Harvard and the Advisory Committee for Artemis Real Estate Partners. She was previously a board member for the Alameda County Employees Retirement Association (ACERA) prior to her time in the Obama Administration. In 2018, she was appointed as an Executive Committee member of America 250, the Congressional Commission responsible for planning the 250th anniversary of the nation’s founding in 2026. Her personal passion includes serving as Founder and CEO of EMPOWERMENT 2020, an initiative that facilitates the physical recognition of historical American women in classrooms and public spaces across the country.
