Brookdale Announces Two New Executive Hires

Management Team Expanded to Support Rapid Growth in Investor Base and Growing Demand for Alternative Investments

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - September 24, 2015) - Brookdale Capital Management, LLC ("Brookdale"), the investment management firm established by a former Director of Crestline Investors, Inc. Adnan Rehmatullah, announced recent additions to the company's executive team to meet the needs of their growing investor base and expanding demand for alternative investments. Jessica Spruiell was named Managing Director of Operations and Hardin Sullivan named Managing Director of Business Development.

"Our investment success has attracted new investors and driven the firm to its next phase in growth. Sustainably successful performance demands top tier operational support. The time is right to expand our team with such talented individuals," says Adnan Rehmatullah, Brookdale's Managing Partner. "Their experience building large asset managers will help further institutionalize our operations."

Spruiell will focus on operational support including regulatory compliance, accounting, and administration. "Jessica will be the driving force behind Brookdale's operational excellence," says Rehmatullah. Spruiell joins Brookdale with 7 plus years of investment and operational support experience. Most recently, she was Senior Analyst of Portfolio Management at Crestline Investors, Inc., a multi-billion dollar alternative investment manager closely affiliated with the Bass Family of Fort Worth, Texas.

Leading the company's business development, Sullivan will ensure Brookdale's new and existing clients receive the highest quality of service. Sullivan will have a primary focus on institutional investors including pensions, endowments, foundations, and government entities. "Hardin's investment acumen combined with experience building firms with strong operational foundations is invaluable," Rehmatullah says. Sullivan has more than 13 years of experience in the institutional investment management industry. Before joining Brookdale, Sullivan was Vice President of Hudiburg Management and Director at Crestline Investors, Inc.

In addition to these new hires, Brookdale has added Brookdale Equity Fund, L.P. to its family of funds. The new strategy is a long-only version of the firm's flagship fund, Brookdale Equity Long/Short Fund, L.P. "We continue to provide superior performance to our investors.
