He presently serves on a number of local and regional boards and advisory groups throughout the Capital Region, including the Chairman of the Planning Board for the Town of Clifton Park and President of the Saratoga Affordable Housing Group. Since 1997, Rocky has been an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Geography & Planning at the University at Albany.
Spain is the Senior Director of Global Engineering for Momentive Performance Materials, which is a global manufacturer of specialty silicones and Quartz products for a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, personal care, consumer products, building and construction, semiconductor and lighting. He has over 24 years of manufacturing and engineering leadership experience with Momentive (formerly GE Silicones), and he currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County.
The Partnership, incorporated in 2014, is leading the charge for streamlined economic development and innovation in Saratoga County. The Saratoga County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the appointment of Ferraro and Spain on October 18, 2016. Both Ferraro and Spain are expected to start their Partnership Board terms immediately.
