Board of Trustees

George Rohr


George Rohr is Founder and President of NCH Capital Inc. Since 1993 the NCH group of funds have been investing across asset classes in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union on behalf of their institutional clients. George began investing in the region shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and was among the earliest Western participants in the privatization opportunities offered by several of the region’s markets. His interest in the Region began as the result of a publishing-related opportunity he pursued in Russia in 1991.

George received an AB in Economics from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He and his wife Pamela live in New York City. Three of their four children are graduates of Ramaz, and their youngest is scheduled to graduate this year.

George’s principal personal philanthropic focus has been the establishment of Chabad Houses across college campuses in North America, as well as the revival of Jewish communal life in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in partnership with Chabad.
