Montebello Mansion - Corporate Headquarters
In the 1860s, Suffern, New York experienced a growth in the development of elegant country estates due to its scenic and wooded landscape surrounded by the Ramapo Mountains. One such estate was that of wealthy New York financier Thomas Fortune Ryan. The Ryans called their estate "Montebello".
In 1951 the copper mining giant Phelps Dodge Corporation bought the prominent mansion and used it as a corporate records headquarters for the next 31 years. After a relocation move, Phelps Dodge sold the mansion to Gary Goldberg, president of the investment/financial planning firm which now bears his name. After a year of extensive renovation, Montebello became an office park.
In addition to serving as our corporate headquarters, Montebello Mansion is also home to the production studio for Money Matters, a weekly financial talk show since 1984. Our founder and CEO Gary Goldberg hosts the weekly program every Saturdays from 3-4PM EST. on AM970 The Answer.
