Greystone, a leading national multifamily and healthcare mortgage lender, has appointed veteran real estate finance expert Marty Lanigan as Executive Vice President. Lanigan will oversee Greystone’s Portfolio Lending Group and report to Co-Chief Operating Officer Robert Barolak.
Greystone’s Portfolio Lending Group was established in 2005 to provide clients with readily available, short-term financing during acquisition, stabilization, rehabilitation and repositioning initiatives. In his new role, Lanigan will oversee the PLG, which includes the firm’s successful bridge lending program, while expanding the Group’s special situation lending efforts, including mezzanine lending, second mortgage loans and sponsor loans.
“Throughout his distinguished career, Marty has proven to be one of the industry’s most creative and innovative experts,” said Barolak. “His leadership will be vital to the continued success and future growth of the Portfolio Lending Group and its products as we work to deliver even more financing options for our clients during transitional periods. We are thrilled that Marty will lead the Group’s expansion and accomplishments, and are excited to welcome him to the Greystone team.”
Lanigan brings a long and successful background in commercial real estate finance to Greystone. Prior to his role as Executive Vice President, Lanigan worked at Meridian Capital and as an independent consultant, completing projects such as the recapitalization of a large hospital in Dublin, Ireland. Before that, he founded and led Mezz Cap, a mezzanine lending firm that funded and securitized over 600 mezzanine loans in conjunction with a network of over 20 U.S. and Canadian conduit lenders. Lanigan has also held positions with Freddie Mac, GMAC and Prudential over the course of his career.
Lanigan, 51, is a CFA charter holder, and holds an MBA in Finance & Investments and International Business from The George Washington University, in Washington, D.C.
