Rockefeller Capital Management, a fast-growing wealth management startup, said on Wednesday that Derek Jeter, the former Yankees captain and a member of the baseball Hall of Fame, had joined its board of directors.
Jeter, whose teams won five World Series, retired from baseball after the 2014 season and is currently the CEO of the Miami Marlins.
A veteran of Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, Greg Fleming, president and CEO of Rockefeller Capital Management, launched the firm in 2018 after acquiring its predecessor, the private multifamily office Rockefeller & Co.
Since then, the firm has been on a growth spurt, taking advantage of the steady flow of wirehouse advisers leaving banks to open their own registered investment advisers or join startups run by industry veterans like Rockefeller. At the start of the month, Rockefeller Capital Management said it had hired its fifteenth team in the past three years.
“I have long respected what Greg and his team have built, and, as a client, deeply understand the value of the financial advice and strategic counsel Rockefeller provides,” Jeter said in a statement. “I look forward to expanding my relationship with the firm and bringing my perspective to this impressive group of board members.”
