Rogelio is the Co-Founder of LCR Capital Partners and has served as the firm’s Chief Commercial Officer since partnering in early 2014 with Suresh Rajan, the firm’s Founder (and fellow HBS classmate) to launch the firm’s EB-5 business. As CCO, he leads the firm’s innovative EB-5 capital raising activities which are exclusively focused on the development of promising, yet largely overlooked, emerging markets around the world. Rather than rely on China, a highly saturated and opaque market dominated by Chinese migration agencies, the firm’s founders chose instead to establish a global footprint of regional offices and execute proprietary capitalraising strategies. This includes the development of strategic alliances with leading global and regional financial institutions and other relevant organizations where LCR’s EB-5 offerings are reviewed as a high-value solution for HNI families globally.
Since 2002, Rogelio has helped build four different companies from their inception into multi-million dollar businesses by launching new products and services that serve the needs of U.S.-based and international C-suite executives, HNW and UHNW investors. Two of these companies were acquired in 2017 [the Corporate Executive Board acquired by Gartner (NYSE:IT) for $2.6 billion and Docurated acquired by Quark Software. The third, Frontier Strategy Group, is a successful venture-backed, emerging markets advisory company based in Washington DC.
Previously, Rogelio was an Investment Officer at Emerging Markets Partnership, a $5 billion private equity firm, an Associate in the Latin American Merchant Banking Group at DLJ, and a Financial Analyst at Wasserstein, Perella & Co. Rogelio graduated cum laude from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a BS in Industrial and Operations Engineering and received a MBA from Harvard Business School where he was a Robert Toigo Foundation Fellow.
