NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rockefeller Capital Management (“Rockefeller” or the “Firm”) today announced that Anthony Grosso has joined as a Managing Director to establish and manage the Firm’s San Francisco office, including business development and recruitment of private wealth advisors in the Bay Area. Grosso is the latest senior hire for the Firm as it continues to build its presence in new markets across the country.

“Tony has had a long career in San Francisco and enjoys relationships with some of the most respected firms, families and organizations in the Bay Area,” said Gregory J. Fleming, President & CEO of Rockefeller Capital Management. “With his expertise and extensive network, he will be an important part of Rockefeller’s success on the West Coast, where we want to grow our business and attract a diverse set of talented advisors.”

Before joining Rockefeller, Grosso spent 15 years as a Managing Director at Merrill Lynch where he was a senior leader of the Ventures Services Group, a team focused on advising private equity and venture firms. Grosso additionally served as a Senior Resident Director for Merrill Lynch from 2009 to 2013.

Grosso is part of a growing team at Rockefeller. This fall, the Firm has added private wealth advisors in Atlanta, New York and Salt Lake City, as well as San Francisco-based Christopher Dupuy as Chief Operating Officer for Private Wealth Management. In August, Atlanta-based Michael Outlaw joined as Head of Eastern Field Management with responsibility for managing and recruiting advisors in the Eastern United States. Rockefeller intends to continue adding individuals and teams who are of the highest integrity and committed to delivering excellence to sophisticated clients.

Prior to Merrill Lynch, Grosso joined Robertson Stephens in 1999 to manage the Venture Services Group, which Merrill acquired three years later. The entire team moved to Merrill as part of the deal, growing the business to serve a significant segment of the private equity community.

Grosso started his career in institutional equity sales at C.J. Lawrence in New York and moved to San Francisco in 1986 to join institutional equity sales at Donaldson, Lufkin and Jenrette (DLJ). He covered west coast accounts at DLJ for more than a decade before joining Robertson Stephens. Grosso has a bachelor’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and an MBA from St. John’s University.
