Bergman Real Estate Group has announced a new hire to spearhead acquisitions activity and expand its portfolio across a variety of asset classes.
The firm, which is based in Woodbridge, said Brian Rand joins its team as director of acquisitions with more than a decade of real estate investment experience. He most recently was the president and founder of Simius Holdings LLC, a boutique real estate investment company with assets throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast.
His focus with Bergman will include growing its portfolio across the industrial, multifamily, office and retail sectors.
“Brian’s experience in evaluating and acquiring commercial properties of all asset types is exactly what we have been searching for to fill this key role in our company,” said Michael Bergman, president of Bergman Real Estate Group. “We are excited to have Brian join our team as we continue to grow our portfolio of value-add investments throughout New Jersey and to begin expanding into other select markets.”
With Simius Holdings, Rand actively acquired, managed and created value for assets within the firm’s portfolio, leading to outsized returns for its investors and partners, according to a news release. He holds a bachelor’s in sociology and business and organizations from Cornell University and an MBA from The George Washington University.
“Bergman Real Estate Group is a well-respected player in the real estate industry with decades of experience and knowledge under its belt,” Rand said. “I look forward to helping grow the firm’s portfolio and continue their long-standing tradition of principled fundamentals and sound investment decisions.”
