Trump Strategies for Real Estate: Billionaire Lessons for the Small Investor (Foreword by Donald Trump)
George H. Ross (born January 6, 1928) is executive vice president and senior counsel of the Trump Organization. He is perhaps best known as one of Donald Trump's two advisors on the NBC reality television program The Apprentice; Carolyn Kepcher was the other. On the program, he monitors the progress of the contestants and assists Trump in determining who should be "fired."
Ross was born to a Jewish family in Brooklyn and raised in the Bronx. His father died when he was 16. Ross went to Stuyvesant High School and afterward, he joined the U.S. Army as a crypt analyst for one year and then attended Clemson University and Brooklyn College where he received a B.A. and then earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School. He was admitted to practice in New York State in 1953. After he passed the bar, he worked in the litigation department for Dreyer & Traub. In 1954, he became the in-house counsel for Goldman DeLorenzo (founded by Sol Goldman and Alex DiLorenzo).
Trump offered Ross a job. Ross said of his boss, "I think I know his mind as well as anybody else. I know what he wants. He gives it to me, and I can take it from there. He does not micromanage. He deals in broad strokes. I love it." Trump said of Ross, "He's tough, firm but fair, a very brilliant lawyer, and I trust his judgment."
He lives on Long Island, is married to Millie Ross; they have two children: Nancy and Stephanie. He is of the Jewish faith. He enjoys tennis and golf, and teaches courses in negotiation and real estate transactions at New York University. He is the author of two books, Trump Strategies For Real Estate and Trump Style Negotiation.
