WASHINGTON, March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Rockefeller Group today announced its expansion to the Mid-Atlantic region with the hiring of Hilary Allard Goldfarb as Senior Vice President and Regional Development Officer. She is based in the firm’s recently established Washington, D.C., office.

Ms. Goldfarb will lead the company’s Mid-Atlantic Region, with primary responsibility for growing the company’s development portfolio through the sourcing of multifamily, office and mixed-use projects, adding to the company’s current development pipeline of approximately 17 million square feet.

According to Ms. Goldfarb, “Rockefeller Group is a highly regarded and respected organization, with a strong national development platform that I look forward to representing and growing in the Mid-Atlantic.”

Ms. Goldfarb was previously a Senior Vice President with Bozzuto Development Company, where she directed the development process for multifamily and mixed-use projects throughout the Baltimore-Washington region. She was responsible for all aspects of development, from acquisitions, financing and entitlements, to overseeing construction and lease-up.
