Upshot Capital Advisors (“Upshot”) is proud to announce and welcome JD Sitton as Managing Director and Head of Capital Markets and Strategy. The addition of Mr. Sitton is part of Upshot’s continued growth strategy, which includes growing its institutional investor base to better leverage its expanding healthcare relationships across the United States and related real estate investment opportunities. In this role, Mr. Sitton will be responsible for Upshot’s strategy and product development while leading all aspects of customer acquisition efforts, including capital raising, marketing, investor relations and client service. Mr. Sitton will report to Raul Socarras, Upshot’s chief executive, and will also be a member of the company’s investment committee.

Mr. Sitton joins Upshot after 3 years at Hines where he served as Head of Capital Markets for the Americas. He brings 30 years of experience working with institutional investors, including 15 years at JPMorgan Asset Management, where he was Head of Real Estate Americas Client Strategy and a member of JPMorgan’s US Real Estate Management team. He started his career as a real estate accountant at Equitable Real Estate/Lend Lease where he held various positions over a period of 9 years.

“I have known JD for some time and am honored to officially welcome him to the Upshot family. His expertise in capital markets, strategy and product development, as well as his leadership, will help us innovate as we let’s continue to build on the successes of our investment platform,” said Raul Socarras, Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Sitton added, “Demographic trends and structural changes in the way healthcare is delivered are driving demand for new spaces in healthcare assets. This type of real estate is underrepresented in investors’ portfolios and deserves an allocation because it can be recession-proof while offering strong growth potential. I’m excited to join Raul and the rest of the Upshot team in bringing these benefits to investor portfolios through our vertically integrated platform.
