Bluerock Capital Markets LLC, as the managing broker-dealer for alternative investment management firm Bluerock, has hired Rebekah Brooks to serve as senior vice president of national accounts.
Brooks will share responsibility for servicing and expanding the company’s broker-dealer partnership network and for raising awareness of the full scope of Bluerock’s offerings.
“Rebekah has earned a highly respected position in the industry. She is known widely for her professionalism and successes in maintaining partnerships and driving growth at her relationship firms,” said Jeffrey Schwaber, CEO of Bluerock Capital Markets.
Brooks joins Bluerock from FS Investments (formerly Franklin Square) where she spent the last 6+ years working in the same capacity. Prior to FS Investments, Brooks spent five years as a national accounts manager at KBS Capital Markets Group.
“Bluerock has sustained breakout growth in its selling group as well as in its equity capital raise in 2017 and is positioned for continuation of the same in 2018 and beyond. The addition of a national accounts professional of Rebekah’s stature will ensure that our broker-dealer partners continue to receive superior service and support as we expand,” added Schwaber.
Headquartered in Manhattan, Bluerock has more than $4.5 billion in assets under management. The company’s sponsored products include Total Income+ Real Estate Fund, Bluerock Residential Growth REIT, and Bluerock Value Exchange.
