New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
An experienced wholesaler, Mr. Browne will be responsible not only for managing sales efforts, but also for delivering high-touch support, training and education initiatives related to Bluerock’s investment program.
He joins Bluerock with 13 years of experience in the financial services industry, including significant experience in real estate investment trusts (REITs). Mr. Browne will support Registered Representatives and Financial Advisors in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
“Patrick’s tenure in the industry and his deep understanding of the mechanics of real estate investing will be a tremendous benefit to our clients,” says Randy Anderson, Chairman of Bluerock Capital Markets. “He is particularly skilled at creating the kind of resourceful and engaging relationships advisors depend on,” he adds.
Before joining Bluerock, Mr. Browne was Regional Vice President at KBS Capital Markets Group in the Midwest, where he wholesaled REIT offerings to independent financial advisors and RIAs. His focus at KBS included the office, multi-family and opportunistic debt segments. Prior, he was Regional Vice President with John Hancock Wealth Management, where he wholesaled variable annuities throughout the Midwest region.
Mr. Browne currently holds FINRA Series 6, 7, and 63 licenses and received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Butler University in Indianapolis, IN.
The addition of Mr. Brown’s role is part of a larger and decisive expansion of Bluerock’s wholesaling capabilities. The company brought its managing broker-dealer function in house late in 2010 with the purchase of Bluerock Capital Markets, in order to strengthen its sales support nationwide. In conjunction, the company has been fortifying its regional coverage significantly.
