Rockefeller Capital Management today announced that it will open a Los Angeles office to serve individuals and families of wealth in Southern California. Nathan Crair will join the Rockefeller Global Family Office as a Managing Director, with responsibility for recruiting and managing Private Wealth Advisors in the region.

“Our goal is to be the premier wealth advisory firm for clients with complex and sophisticated wealth management needs,” said Chris Randazzo, President of Private Wealth Management. “We couldn’t ask for a better leader than Nathan to help us fulfill that mission. With more than 30 years of industry experience and strong ties to the Los Angeles community, he is ideally suited to lead Rockefeller’s expansion in Southern California.”

Crair is the latest senior addition at Rockefeller Capital Management, which continues to expand its global family office, strategic advisory and asset management businesses by adding talented professionals and opening local offices in new markets across the US. In addition to its headquarters in New York, the Firm has Rockefeller Global Family Office professionals in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Greenwich, New Jersey, Palm Beach, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Saratoga Springs, Washington, DC, and Wilmington, DE.

“We are very pleased to have Nathan join our growing team of outstanding professionals,” said Christopher Dupuy, Chief Operating Officer of Rockefeller’s Private Wealth business. “His proven leadership combined with the breadth of capabilities and services that Rockefeller can offer clients will help us bring the industry’s best advisors to our firm. We are excited to grow our presence in Southern California, where there is a significant market of individuals and families with complex and sophisticated wealth management and family office needs.”

Prior to joining Rockefeller in August, Crair will have spent 14 years as Managing Director of the West Los Angeles Market at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, leading a team of more than 200 Financial Advisors across six offices. During that time, Crair served as Co-Chair of the West LA Council, a cross-line business initiative that led client integration efforts throughout the city of Los Angeles. Crair began his career in the industry as a Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch and then Prudential Securities, where he rose to manage offices in Beverly Hills, Century City, Laguna and Scottsdale. Crair also oversaw the Special Accounts Group, a business charged with better serving high net worth and international clients, along with middle market institutions.
