ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Upshot Capital Advisors ("Upshot") is proud to announce and welcome J.D. Sitton as a Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets and Strategy. The addition of Mr. Sitton is part of Upshot's continued growth strategy which includes growing its institutional investor base in order to better capitalize on its expanding healthcare relationships across the U.S. and related real estate investment opportunities. In this role, Mr. Sitton will be responsible for Upshot's strategy and product development while leading all aspects of client acquisition efforts including capital raising, marketing, investor relations and client service. Mr. Sitton will report to Raul Socarras, Upshot's Chief Executive Officer, and will also serve as a member of the firm's Investment Committee.
Mr. Sitton joins Upshot after 3-years at Hines where he served as Head of Capital Markets for the Americas. He brings 30 years of experience with institutional investors which includes 15 years with JPMorgan Asset Management, where he served as Head of Real Estate Americas Client Strategy and as a member of JPMorgan's U.S. Real Estate Management team. He began his career as a real estate accountant working for Equitable Real Estate/Lend Lease where he held various posts over a 9-year span. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst and has held the series 7, 63 and 24 securities licenses.
"I have known J.D. for some time and am honored to formally welcome him to the Upshot Family. His expertise in capital markets, strategy, and product development, along with his leadership, will help break new ground for us as we continue to build on our investment platform's track record of success," said Raul Socarras, Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Sitton added, "demographic trends and structural changes in the way healthcare is delivered are driving the demand for new space in healthcare related assets. This type of real estate is under-represented in investor portfolios and worthy of allocation as it can be recession resilient while also holding strong growth potential. I am excited to join Raul, and the rest of the Upshot team, in bringing these benefits to investor portfolios through our vertically integrated platform."
