Greg Zanetti

Greg grew up in Albuquerque and graduated from Valley High School in 1976. He was accepted to the United States Military Academy at West Point and graduated in 1980 as a second lieutenant in the field artillery. After postings at Ft. Benning, Ft. Sill, and The Defense Language Institute, Greg was assigned to NATO nuclear artillery units in Germany.

After six years in the army, Greg had earned his Master’s degree in business and returned home to New Mexico. He went to work as a financial advisor for E.F. Hutton. Simultaneously, he joined the New Mexico Army National Guard. Greg became an independent financial advisor in 1991.

Greg was promoted to Brigadier General in 2005. He was then deployed to Guantanamo Bay in 2008 where he served as both deputy commander and commander Joint Task Force Guantanamo (JTF GTMO). His deployment forced the selling of his previous financial services business. Upon return from GTMO, Greg managed money for wealth families and businesses in the Greater Seattle area.

Greg’s and Teresa’s recently returned to New Mexico and Greg started his new firm Zanetti Financial, LLC.

Indian Pueblo Cultural Center

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC) Campus serves as a gathering place where Pueblo Culture is celebrated through creative and cultural experiences, while providing economic opportunities to Pueblo and local communities. It is located at the heart of nearly 80 acres of land owned by the 19 Pueblos and governed by the 19 Pueblos District (a sovereign government formed by the Tribal Councils of the 19 New Mexico Pueblo Communities) at the former location of the Albuquerque Indian School (1881-1982). The Center is comprised of museum and gallery space, a collection of murals and other Native arts and artifacts, a library, archives, an education department, a teaching kitchen/restaurant, and cultural programming and events – each celebrating the Pueblo culture of New Mexico.
