FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich.—Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust (RPT) has appointed Geoffrey Bedrosian as Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately.

In his new role, Bedrosian will report to Dennis Gershenson, President and Chief Executive Officer, and will be responsible for all the company’s financial functions. He will also lead the accounting, SEC financial reporting, capital markets, tax, investor relations and financial planning and analysis teams.

“Geoff has an impressive track record and an outstanding reputation within the financial investment banking and REIT communities. He possesses extensive capital markets expertise, wide-ranging knowledge of the real estate industry and he has been a valued advisor to the Company for many years,” said Dennis Gershenson in prepared remarks.

Bedrosian joins RPT after a 20-year career in real estate investment banking. Back in 2000 he was part of the lead underwriting team that advised the company on its secondary public offering. He has served as a lead manager on nearly all of the company’s subsequent capital offerings. Bedrosian was instrumental in securing the first successful private debt placement for RPT, and served as the company’s lead advisor on two major joint venture partnerships.

Outside his long-standing relationship with RPT, Bedrosian was responsible for relationships with over 35 public and private companies.
