John Kinzelberg
CEO & Managing Partner
Highgate Capital Group

In 2012, Kinzelberg co-founded Highgate Capital Group in Chicago, Illinois where the company focuses on the acquisition and asset management of multi-family properties across the United States in high growth markets. The firm currently has 1,200 units with an aggregate cost over $71 million.

With an extensive history, Kinzelberg has served in numerous decision-making positions after his MBA matriculation from the Columbia Business School in 2001. Initially responsible for due diligence and financial analysis at Mesirow Stein Real Estate, he secured over $790 million of debt and equity capital for both commercial and residential real estate.

As a rising star, Kinzelberg filled the role of Vice President upon joining Waterton Associates, a national multi-family investment advisor for private institutions. There his direction led to acquisitions investing in more than $141 million of equity in multi-family assets, and obtained subordinated and distressed debt with an aggregate loan balance of $232 million secured by 35,100 multi-family units. With this joint understanding in the equity and debt markets, John will undoubtedly bring a unique perspective for discussion and review.
