From the March issue: Alan Rosenbaum is the CEO of GuardHill Financial Corp., a Manhattan-based mortgage bank and brokerage firm. The 82-person company, which Rosenbaum founded in 1992, brokers and backs about $1 billion in residential mortgages in the tri-state area annually, he said, with a focus on Manhattan and Brooklyn and an eye toward growing in Queens.
