What an odd specimen. It almost reminds me of some type of Magnolia. Maybe a close-up of a branch cluster would help. And I think that the yellow patches are just variegation. They look way too defined to be anything else.

Looks like a Croton, Codiaeum variegatum pictum. Give it more sunlight and it will get more colorful.

It looks like Codiaeum to me also. High light plants ... needs much more sun.

I agree with Croton. They like bright light but will grow in almost no light. Office buildings often use them for this reason.

I wouldn't think they'd survive very long in almost no light, but maybe they would just grow and have mostly green foliage? Down here in Florida, Codiaum/Croton's are used as landscape plants in full sun, which brings out the beautiful colors.
