Rockefeller Capital Management Adds Managing Director for the East Coast

Michael Outlaw will open Rockefeller Capital Management’s Atlanta office and will be responsible for leading the firm’s growth strategy across the region.

Rockefeller Capital Management has added another executive to its ranks, tapping Michael Outlaw from Morgan Stanley to lead the firm’s recruiting and wealth advisors in the Eastern United States.

Outlaw was Morgan Stanley’s complex manager for the Atlanta Buckhead region and led the Private Wealth Management for the Southeast. At Rockefeller, he will work with advisors to advise the firm’s clients who are ultra- and high-net-worth individuals, foundations, endowments and corporations. As of July 31, the firm had $18.3 billion in assets under advisement, with offices in New York, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Wilmington, Del. 

Last week, Rockefeller announced it hired former GE executive Jack Ryan to lead talent acquisition. Rockefeller Capital Management 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 former Morgan Stanley Wealth chief Greg Fleming, with a goal of managing $100 billion in assets within 5 years.

“Michael ... has extensive management and operational experience as a leader of financial advisors and teams that provide best-in-class service to ultra- and high-net-worth clients,” Fleming said in a statement. “Michael will focus on putting in place all the building blocks to enable us to expand our presence in the region.”
