Retzlaff, who recently joined the firm, has an extensive background in distribution, marketing, training and management, having helped to develop and manage direct and indirect investment offerings in real estate, energy, insurance and mutual funds. Prior to joining Shopoff, Retzlaff served as managing director of RightSource Distributors, where he managed and advised emerging sponsors with product design and capital formation.
