Anthony Alicea to Boost Portfolio Lending at Greystone
February 5, 2018
Greystone announced Anthony Alicea has joined the company as Head of Production for the Portfolio Lending Group, reporting to Mark Jarrell, who leads the Group. In this role, Mr. Alicea will oversee production for the firm’s bridge and mezzanine lending products that complement Greystone’s FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and CMBS lending products.
Mr. Alicea’s arrival coincides with an expanded bridge financing and mezzanine loan product line. Greystone recently introduced a 5-10 year CMBS-mezzanine loan product and is rolling out a 1-3 year short-term mezzanine loan product for multifamily and healthcare properties that are moving toward a permanent agency exit.
Mr. Alicea brings a wealth of experience in commercial real estate finance. Throughout his 20-year career, he has led CMBS and securitization projects for Arthur Andersen’s real estate consultancy, managed CMBS production at Nomura Credit & Capital, Inc., and originated Agency loans as well as CDO activity at Centerline Capital Group (now Hunt Mortgage). Mr. Alicea also previously held multifamily finance roles at Pensam Capital LLC and World Class Capital Group.
“With an anticipated increased demand for our bridge and mezzanine financing, we are thrilled for Anthony to create and match a robust cross-platform suite of solutions for existing and new Greystone clients,” said Jarrell, head of Greystone’s Portfolio Lending Group. “We want clients to know that our desire to help them meet their goals means that we will work tirelessly to create flexible financing solutions while exceeding their expectations in service and execution.”
