Neil Craig has returned to Rockefeller & Co., which, since the 1980s, has managed money from other investors, as senior vice president. He is charged with selling the firm’s services to institutional investors and investment consultants, the firm said.
Craig was most recently a managing director at Philadelphia-based Attalus, handling new business development.

“I am pleased to welcome Neil back to Rockefeller & Co.,” CEO Reuben Jeffery said. “Neil is a seasoned asset management professional whose investment acumen and experience will serve our clients well.”
