In his new role at RGIM, Rivard leads acquisitions strategy and execution, working closely with the firm's Washington, D.C. and New York teams.  His primary responsibilities include sourcing, executing and financing investment opportunities on behalf of the company's U.S.-focused property fund, Rockefeller Group U.S. Premier Office Fund LP, which closed in the summer of 2013 with $500 million in equity commitments, including $250 million of co-investment equity for joint venture acquisitions. Rivard will also manage separate accounts and JV initiatives.
