Alternative investments and capital markets specialist Marc Rucinski has joined Civitas Capital Group as head of capital markets.
Civitas Capital is a Dallas-based alternative investment manager offering niche opportunities in U.S. real estate.
“Marc’s hiring is the latest example of Civitas’ commitment to institutional-quality investment management,” Heather Jones, chief operating officer for Civitas, said in a statement. “Marc brings deep experience in private equity and real estate capital markets with leading global financial institutions, which marries perfectly with our firm’s growth strategy.”
Rucinski will focus on expanding Civitas Capital’s equity and debt investor base across its target asset classes including multifamily, lodging, and niche opportunistic investments.
The company said that Rucinski will split time between Civitas’ Dallas headquarters and Los Angeles.
“I’m excited to join a firm as relentlessly creative as Civitas and look forward to supporting the firm’s existing and future product and investment strategies” Rucinski said in a statement.
Rucinski comes to Civitas after a career spanning nearly three decades in which he has executed more than $45 billion in private equity and real estate transactions. His background includes experience structuring funds, joint ventures, and co-investments structures for pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, family offices, endowments, and foundations.
Rucinski has significant experience advising public and private executive management teams and company boards on buy and sell side mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, and financial strategy, the firm said.
Most recently, he was head of capital formation and investor relations at Trinity Investments in Los Angeles, where he led efforts to develop new investment products and joint ventures.
Before that, he held senior positions at Citi Private Bank in Hong Kong and New York; Credit Suisse Securities in New York; Merrill Lynch in New York; and Accenture in Denver, Brussels, Paris, and Nashville.
