Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company based in New York, announced that David Sebastian has joined the firm as a Senior Managing Director. Sebastian, who is based in Austin, TX, will report to Greg McManus, Greystone’s Chief Growth Officer.

 A long-time veteran of the affordable housing industry, Sebastian was previously with Wentwood Companies. There, he was President of the Wentwood Companies, an institutional Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) fund manager and owner-operator of affordable housing communities.

“Having worked with Dave for many years, I know his strategic vision and capital markets knowledge will help elevate Greystone’s role in the affordable sector,” added Mr. McManus. “I’m thrilled to welcome him to Greystone and could not be more excited for what’s in store for affordable at Greystone with Dave’s direction.”

In this role, Sebastian will work with Greystone’s senior leadership team to enhance and expand the firm’s presence in the affordable housing capital markets. 

“Greystone’s reach in affordable housing is certainly already very wide, and if we harness these many strengths together, we can create new opportunities while solidifying our leadership position as an affordable housing capital provider,” said Mr. Sebastian. “It’s a complex sector, but by having a robust toolbox at our clients’ disposal, we can be an even more valuable partner to them.”
