Meet Nathan Bruschi
A Lifelong Local
An Upstate Family. Nathan is a native of the capital region. His parents met while students at the University of Albany. Before Nathan was born, his mother worked as a child psychologist at local public schools and his father worked as a district manager at General Electric.
Eagle Scout. Nathan was active throughout childhood in the Boy Scouts of America where he built up the community through volunteer service projects, learned our region’s values, and gained an appreciation for our land’s natural beauty. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout for service performed at Parson’s Child and Family Center in Albany.
Early Promise. Nathan attended The Albany Academy for high school where he graduated Valedictorian of his class and instituted the leadership program that is still in use today.
Committed to service
Military Service. Nathan has always felt called to public service. After graduating from Dartmouth College, he joined the United States Navy where he served for five years as an intelligence officer. He spent the majority of this time overseas, deploying four times from Guatemala to Japan.
Humanitarian. In his last deployment, he led a humanitarian mission to Central America. There he led doctors, nurses, construction crews, and military trainers as they rebuilt crumbling infrastructure, brought healthcare access to remote villages, and trained local police forces.
White House. Nathan resolved to bring his service mission home. Outside of his military service, he worked in National Security Affairs at the White House under Vice President Joe Biden, and for New York’s delegation in the House of Representatives.
Record of job creation
Non-profit Leadership. Nathan founded the Dartmouth Uniformed Service Alumni, a 501c3 non-profit that has helped dozens of military veterans unlock opportunities in higher education, and inspires more college students to serve their country.
Harvard Educated. After completing his military service, Nathan used his Post-9/11 GI Bill to pursue graduate education. He earned his Master in Business Administration from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar (graduating in the top 5% of his class), and his Master in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School, where he completed his thesis on ways to improve the efficiency of the Albany County Land Bank.
Employment for the Future. Nathan now works as the Chief Financial Officer at GENESYS, a recruiting and staffing firm based in Colonie. There, Nathan helps residents of the Capital Region secure good-paying local jobs in the information technology sector.
Prosperity in Colonie. His work increases prosperity in the region and gives new opportunity to the future generation who, like him, chooses to stay in Albany. Nathan lives in Colonie with his wife, Roanna, and their pet rabbit, Gingerbread.
