Douglas Dubiel is the latest to join Rockefeller Capital Management, the Rockefeller family-backed firm led by former Morgan Stanley Wealth Chief Greg Fleming. Dubiel, who most recently was at Goodrich, a billion-dollar single family office, joins as a managing director and senior wealth management advisor and will build out Rockefeller’s West Palm Beach, Fla. office.
Dubiel is the 13th senior hire to join with a Merrill Lynch background since Rockefeller was relaunched in March. Prior to Goodrich, he was a senior vice president for Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. The firm was formed earlier this year through the acquisition of family office Rockefeller & Co. by its management team, the investment fund Viking Global Investors and a Rockefeller family trust. It is led by Fleming, with a goal of managing $100 billion in assets within 5 years.
According to LinkedIn, Dubiel joins from Goodrich, where he served as chief operating officer and trustee for the past 4 years and as chief investment officer and trustee for 9 years prior to that. Because he’s coming from a single family office, he won’t be bringing over a book of business.
“His addition is part of the firm’s strategy to augment its capabilities to serve ultra- and high-net-worth clients, providing the same level of care and expertise that has served wealthy families since its inception in 1882,” the firm said in a statement.
Dubiel will report to Michael Outlaw, who Rockefeller recently tapped to lead the firm’s recruiting and wealth advisors in the Eastern United States and open its Atlanta office.
