A special two-part podcast features ABI Editor-at-Large Bill Rochelle talking with former ABI Executive Director Sam Gerdano, an alumnus of Syracuse University, about his career arc toward bankruptcy, chapter 12, how ABI has grown as an organization, and what bankruptcy policies he sees on the horizon for congressional consideration. The first podcast, accessible below, features Sam's insights on his move toward bankruptcy policy, his time on the Hill in Sen. Charles Grassley's (R-Iowa) office, and the enactment of chapter 12.
Gerdano's reflections on his career were featured in the Bankruptcy Symposium edition of the Syracuse Law Review (scroll to "Book 2: Bankruptcy Symposium 2020-2021"). In addition to Gerdano's oral history, the edition features articles by many ABI members on key bankruptcy issues. Sen. Grassley also provided a foreword for the edition.
