Robert Deckey, who was most recently chief investment officer for George Comfort & Sons, has joined Invesco Real Estate, the firm announced Thursday. Deckey will be heading up New York acquisitions for the Dallas-based investment firm.

Deckey worked at George Comfort since 2002, where he helped grow its portfolio to over 12 million square feet of office space, with the majority of it in New York City.

Deckey previously worked at Citigroup and at JPMorgan, where he was a vice president of real estate investment banking.

Invesco’s New York projects include Dumbo Heights, a 1.2 million-square-foot office complex. The firm went on a buying spree at the beginning of 2013, snapping up assets such as the Mercedes House rental building for $170 million  and paying $175 million for a stake in the Factory Building at 30-30 47th Avenue in Long Island City.

The company sold its stake in the Helmsley Building to RXR Realty and the Blackstone Group in 2015. — Hiten Samtani
