Manhattan-based real estate fund manager Hudson Realty Capital has tapped Eugene Rozovsky as associate.
In his new post, Rozovsky will be responsible for determining the viability and profitability of Hudson’s equity and debt investments through underwriting and due diligence.
Rozovsky joins Hudson from The Blackstone Group, where he held several positions, including assistant vice president within the research group. During his time at Blackstone, Rozovsky led and managed investment research for a broad range of asset classes, including real estate. Prior to Blackstone, Rozovsky was an investment banking analyst at TM Capital Corp. where he focused on mergers and acquisitions.
“Eugene’s extensive experience in proprietary and secondary research, as well as financial analysis, will advance Hudson’s disciplined due diligence strategy for our middle-market opportunistic investments,” said Spencer Garfield, principal and managing director of Hudson.
Hudson, which launched its first funds eight years ago, has closed more than $3.5 billion in transactions. The company’s activities include originating, participating in, servicing, restructuring and/or acquiring high-yield, special situation debt and mezzanine loans. Hudson also invests directly in real estate and the acquisition of under-performing real estate assets and other real estate-related instruments.
Hudson currently managers more than $2.5 billion. In addition to its New York headquarters, the firm has offices in Portland, Maine and Fort Myers, Florida.
