Blackfin Real Estate Investors Adds Matthew Petrillo as Managing Director of Investments
Arlington, VA-based Blackfin Real Estate Investors, LLC has hired Matthew Petrillo as managing director of investments in the company’s first executive-investment hire formally devoted to portfolio growth and geographic expansion.
Petrillo will be responsible for acquisitions and assisting with investor relations, targeting high-growth markets across the Southeast including AL, FL, GA, KY and TN.
Petrillo arrives from Madison Capital, where he served as VP, acquisitions and was responsible for transaction sourcing, execution and investor relations. Previously, he worked for more than six years at Clarion Partners, focused on multifamily, industrial, office and retail acquisitions throughout the East Coast and Midwest regions. During his time at Clarion, Petrillo acquired approximately $1.5 billion of investments.
Since the 2016 launch of Blackfin Real Estate Investors, LLC, the real estate investment management company has acquired nearly 12,000 multifamily units in major markets along the Atlantic.
Lisa McDuffie arrives at ConnectCRE via REALTOR® world, where she served for nearly two decades as communications director for one of the nation’s largest REALTOR® organizations. She supported two membership-elected presidents who were commercial real estate practitioners, and managed the communications initiatives of the organization’s commercial special interest group.
When not following the latest commercial real estate news, Lisa is zeroed in on her charismatic off-the-track thoroughbred as she makes the transition from an utterly failed racehorse to a lovely show hunter.
