NEW YORK CITY—Rockefeller Group has hired real estate development and investment professional Megumi Brod as SVP, regional development officer, Northeast region. Prior to joining the firm, she was a principal at Bedrock Real Estate Partners, where she oversaw several projects in New York, Massachusetts and Washington, DC.
