Pittsburgh Magazine has named their 2015 40 Under 40 class — a list comprised of men and women who have not yet reached midlife but have accomplished singular things that bode well for the future, both theirs and the region’s. Included within the 2015 list is Pennsylvania Delta (Allegheny) Phi and Phi Delta Theta Province President Jordan Pallitto.
As vice president of The Hill Group, a Carnegie-based consulting firm with dozens of corporate and nonprofit clients, Jordan Pallitto leads organizations through the strategic planning process — a sometimes maze-like journey from idea to completion. At age 31, he has worked with such local giants as UPMC, The Forbes Funds, The Heinz Endowments and Highmark, as well as civic groups such as East Liberty Development, the Mount Washington Community Development Corp., the YWCA and Grow Pittsburgh. On the charitable front, The Consortium for Public Education, the Hempfield Area School District Charitable Foundation Fund and Robert Morris University are some of the organizations that have drawn on his expertise both professionally and on a volunteer basis.
My big dream or ambition is … I’d like to own one of those farms in Spain that make the really good Spanish Iberian ham, where the black-hoofed pigs eat acorns and olives and the owners smoke cigars all day.
