SAN FRANCISCO-Industry executive Sharon Ann M. Miller has returned from a bit of a sabbatical to become a managing director at Rockwood Capital, a locally headquartered real estate investment firm with an estimated $6-billion portfolio. Known by her acronym, “Samm,” Miller will lead the company’s investor relations function from its New York City office with a focus on client service, marketing and raising capital.

Miller, 44, has 20 years experience in the real estate industry. In 2005 and 2006, she was the senior managing director of Trammell Crow Co.’s global services group. Prior to that, she was a managing partner with Hart Advisors Inc. for five years, heading up investment strategy. Earlier on in her career, she served in various capacities at TIAA-CREF, ranging from corporate facilities to debt underwriting, transaction restructuring and portfolio management.

Miller has been on a sabbatical of sorts for the past three years, sitting on a couple of boards at the University of Virginia and doing some philanthropic work there as well, a source close to Rockwood tells GlobeSt.com. Miller was not immediately available Monday afternoon for comment.

Led by chief executive Ed Kavounas, Rockwood provides equity capital and expertise for repositioning, recapitalization, development and redevelopment of commercial property types, including retail, hotel, residential, office, and research and development. The company currently manages assets valued at $6.2 billion for which its investors have put up $2.85 billion of equity. Its investors include public and private pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, institutions and high net worth individuals.
