Roseville, CA – DCA Partners (“DCA”), the region’s premier Merger & Acquisition advisory and Private Equity investment firm, has continued its growth trajectory with the addition of three new executive positions in January 2022. These three positions will play critical roles in building out DCA’s newly established Family Office investment group which is seeking to acquire over $2.0 billion in income-producing assets in 2022 on behalf of one of its clients.

Chris Stephenson started with DCA on January 10 as Senior Vice President of Real Estate. He oversees the identification, analysis, and due diligence of attractive real estate investments on behalf of one of DCA’s long-standing clients.

Chris possesses vast industry experience, including his most recent role as a Partner at Concrete Venture Capital, a London-based real estate, property, and construction technology investment firm. Chris also served as Managing Director at AIG Global Real Estate Investment Corp, where he managed a multi-billion dollar real estate portfolio through partner relationships in the United States, Europe, Middle East, and India.

“We are thrilled and flattered that Chris has decided to join DCA,” said Curt Rocca, Managing Partner at DCA. “Chris’ vast real estate investment and operating experience will be crucial as we pursue the best real estate investment opportunities on the market.”

Michael Hodgkinson joined on January 17 as Vice President of Residential Investments. He focuses primarily on sourcing, analysis, due diligence, negotiation, and management of residential equity transactions.

Michael’s professional accomplishments include his recent work with Aimco /AIR Communities (REIT) and Grosvenor Group, where he focused on sourcing, underwriting and due diligence, strategic planning, and portfolio analysis of primarily multifamily assets throughout North America.

“Michael has already made impressive strides in driving our goals forward,” commented Rocca. “We feel fortunate to have him on the team and are confident he will help establish DCA as a leader in multifamily equity investments in the coming months and years.”

Tom Bratkovich is DCA’s Senior Vice President of Investments, as of January 18. Tom oversees DCA’s investment strategy, portfolio construction, deal sourcing, and investment underwriting activities for DCA’s Family Office clients.

Before joining DCA, Tom served as a senior team member at Wilshire Associates, where he was responsible for business development and new product formation for a team allocating $2 billion per year to private equity, private credit, and private real assets investments. He also developed and managed a co-investment platform for tens of Family Offices. Prior to Wilshire, Tom worked at Longview Investment Partners and LP Capital Advisors, where he advised some of the largest pension funds and institutional investors in the world. He was also a Venture Capitalist working at a top-ten West Coast VC firm and multi-billion Family Office.

“Tom made a lasting impression during our work together at LP Capital Advisors, and I could not be more excited to be working with him again,” said Craig Mitchell, Partner at DCA. “His intellect, creativity, and expertise will make a profound impact at DCA and significantly benefit our clients.
