NEW YORK CITY-The former head of fund-raising for Citi Property Investors has joined the Rockefeller Group’s investment subsidiary. John Bottomley comes in as SVP of Rockefeller Group Investment Management Corp., the investment arm launched 20 months ago.

“Our strategic vision for RGIM is to create a leading global real estate investment management platform by leveraging the development skills, market presence and brand recognition of both The Rockefeller Group and our parent, Mitsubishi Estate Company, Ltd.,” says Kevin Hackett, president and CEO of Rockfeller Group International, in a release. “John will be a key player in accomplishing that.”

Bottomley brings more than 25 years’ experience in marketing, real estate investment and real estate lending to RGIM. Before joining the company, he spent five years as managing director and global product specialist for CPI. There, Bottomley launched three first-time regional opportunity funds, a global real estate securities platform and two multi-manager real estate funds.

Bottomley started his career as a management associate with Citibank Canada. He rose through the ranks at Citi in various positions in Citi Capital Markets & Banking, the Citi Private Bank and the Travelers Insurance Co. At each of these organizations, Bottomley served on management and investment committees, and is said to have extensive relationships globally with institutional and high net worth investors and real estate operating partners.

In a release, Dennis Irvin–president and CEO of RGIM since its inception–comments that Bottomley’s experience “will no doubt aid our efforts in developing and executing a fund-raising strategy targeted toward institutional investors. He will also work closely with me on expanding RGIM’s global presence as we look for partners for our real estate development program.”

When RGIM was launched in September 2007, Rockefeller Group International’s then-president and CEO, Jonathan Green, said, “We envision Rockefeller Group Investment Management as the entity through which we will ultimately coordinate all of our investment management activities and RGIM will raise funds to underwrite a greatly expanded real estate development program in the future.” Irvin told GlobeSt.com that the company would focus on how to anchor a global non-US platform, focusing on acquisition and joint venture opportunities. He added that this investment management arm is a natural complement to Rockefeller’s existing platforms.

The Rockefeller Group’s other subsidiaries currently in place include the Rockefeller Group Development Corp., the Rockefeller Group Technology Solutions Inc. and the Rockefeller Group Business Centers Inc.
