Robert A. Wrzosek has been named president of the mortgage lending business of Centerline Holding Co.
The announcement was made by Hunt Cos., which completed its acquisition of Centerline in November.
Previously, Wrzosek served on the board of directors of Walker & Dunlop, a commercial real estate finance company, and held senior leadership positions in the agency lending and tax credit syndication businesses of Credit Suisse Securities. Prior to joining Credit Suisse, he was a partner at Eichner & Norris, a Washington, D.C.-based law firm.
“I am pleased to have someone with Rob’s skills and capabilities heading this newly acquired platform for Hunt,” said Chris Hunt, president and COO of Hunt, in a statement. “Rob’s experience within the industry will provide great value as we integrate Centerline with the Hunt family of companies.”
Wrzosek will serve on several Hunt governance boards and committees. He is based in New York City.
Centerline is known for its Centerline Capital Group, a real estate finance and asset management company that is active in both affordable and conventional multifamily housing.
Hunt is a national real estate developer, investor, and manager. It is based in El Paso, Texas.
The El Paso Times reported that Rob Levy, who had been president and COO of Centerline, is leaving the company. Alan Fair, president of Hunt Capital Partners, will oversee Centerline’s non-mortgage business.
