Sterling Bay Co. has appointed Scott Rafferty as director of investor relations within its Chicago office, as it continues to expand its portfolio and diversify capital base in the Windy City. Rafferty will join the company after having spent 18 years as managing director & head of investor relations at Citadel. His new responsibilities include consolidating and expanding investor relationships as well as growing and deploying capital across existing and future investment opportunities.

During his time at Citadel and, prior to this, at Harris Bank in Chicago, Rafferty worked with a variety of clients and capital opportunities and is about to “share the Sterling Bay story with more audiences” as he said in prepared remarks. He is a graduate of Ball State University and holds a master’s degree in business administration from Northwestern University. 

Scott has an extraordinary appreciation for what it takes to develop a diverse capital base, provide scalable value and build lasting relationships. His unique experience, contagious energy and relentless curiosity will truly set our brand apart in a competitive market,” Managing Principal Andy Gloor said in a prepared statement.

Sterling Bay has added several iconic assets to its Chicago portfolio this year, such as the former Montgomery Ward building and Prudential Plaza, and is pending the acquisition of the John Hancock building. It has also recently opened McDonald’s new global headquarters in the West Loop and is getting ready to break ground on a $6 billion Lincoln Yards development next year.
