Investment management firm Bluerock Real Estate announced today that it has hired Larry Milder to lead the sales effort for its managing broker-dealer – Bluerock Capital Markets (BCM) – as Director of National Sales. Mr. Milder will be responsible for accelerating sales growth across the company’s line of successful direct private placements as well as its public interval fund, and will also be tasked with building out distribution teams to support its product lines.
A leader in the independent sales channel, Mr. Milder has developed high-performing sales and distribution teams at several leading investment management firms and has, over the past 12 years, been responsible for raising more than $30 billion in funds, annuities and life insurance. Prior to joining Bluerock, Mr. Milder was Managing Director and Head of National Sales – Independent Advisors Division at Legg Mason, where he focused on the company’s independent sales channel for mutual funds and managed accounts and closed end funds, growing the business significantly. Before Legg Mason, he was Director of National Sales – Independent Division for Nationwide Financial Services, where he worked with the Advisor Business Unit. Earlier, he served as Director of National Sales – Financial Institutions and Advisors Division for MFS Investment Management, where he oversaw a retail distribution operation for mutual funds, annuities and separately managed accounts.
“Larry brings a unique and well-rounded perspective to his role at Bluerock, particularly now as the company continues to sharpen its focus on our core investment products,” said Ramin Kamfar, Bluerock CEO and Founder. “Not only does he come with a tremendously successful track record as a national sales manager, he is a terrific mentor and motivator with strong experience as a wholesaler and advisor. Larry is highly relatable across our full business channel.”
Mr. Milder joins Bluerock as the company prepares to expand its market share in the direct private placements and public interval / mutual fund spaces. His business development and marketing strategies, knowledge of advisor requirements, and results-driven focus will continue to raise the bar for Bluerock distribution as it expands its dual channel outreach in public and private investment programs.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining,” said Mr. Milder, who has begun the process of creating the team that will specialize in the company’s offerings. “Bluerock is a strong player in the alternative investment space with a lineup of solid products, creative leadership and a good pulse on the market. The company is adept at setting the table to accommodate what’s next in a market that can be very challenging.”
Mr. Milder attended graduate school at Boston University’s School of Public Communication. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in History from American International College.
