Robert K. Futterman is the founder, chairman, and chief executive of RKF, the retail leasing and investment sales brokerage that bears his name. A four-time winner of the REBNY Retail Deal of the Year (2001, 2005, 2009 and 2010), he has been involved in transactions totaling more than $10 billion. He specializes in landlord and tenant representation, new construction, leasing, sales, and market analysis. Futterman grew up in Jericho, Long Island. He played a leading role revitalizing shopping streets and areas throughout New York City, including Union Square South, SoHo, Columbus Circle, and the Meatpacking District. He advised the Port Authority of NY & NJ on the World Trade Center redevelopment. Anything that's been vertical retail in New York, [RKF has] been involved in it, Futterman told the New York Times. He has played a role in re-launching the Shops at Desert Passage as the Miracle Mile Shops, a 475,000-square-foot shopping complex on the Las Vegas Strip.

Futterman dropped out of the University of Maryland and joined the retail brokerage Garrick-Aug Associates in 1983. In 1998, he left Garrick-Aug, which later shuttered, to found RKF with 22 employees. In 2012, he pleaded guilty to one felony and one misdemeanor count related to his 2011 arrest in Long Island on drunk driving charges on Sag Harbor Turnpike with four children under the age of 16 in his car. Futterman shares custody of two sons with his ex-wife.
