Bergman Real Estate Group promotes Brian Rand to chief investment officer

Woodbridge-based Bergman Real Estate Group announced that Brian Rand has been promoted to chief investment officer.

Rand joined the Bergman organization in October 2022 as director of acquisitions.

Rand will continue to be responsible for spearheading the firm’s acquisitions activity and expanding the firm’s portfolio across a variety of asset classes, including industrial, multifamily, office and retail.

“Brian has proven to be an invaluable addition to the Bergman team, driving our growth and effectively leading efforts to diversify our portfolio. His expertise in evaluating the entire investment lifecycle of commercial properties aligns perfectly with the requirements of this new role,” Michael Bergman, president of Bergman Real Estate Group, said.

Before joining Bergman, Rand was president and founder of Simius Holdings LLC, a boutique real estate investment company with assets throughout the Midwestern, Southeastern and Northeastern U.S.

“I am excited to begin my new role at Bergman, where I’ll not only expand our portfolio, but also enhance the value of our currently owned assets. The Bergman team’s impressive business conduct continues to impress me, and I am enthusiastic about assuming more of a leadership role in guiding these practices,” Rand said.
