Colony Credit Completes Rebrand as BrightSpire Capital

Colony Credit Real Estate has completed its rebranding as BrightSpire Capital, Inc. Headquartered in Midtown Manhattan while maintaining a substantial presence in Los Angeles, the company will continue to be publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the new ticker symbol BRSP.

The name change to BrightSpire Capital is a part of the company’s rebranding initiative as a vertically integrated commercial real estate finance platform, from the internalization of management and operating functions completed on April 30.

“Our work is not done,” said Michael Mazzei, BrightSpire’s president and CEO. “We will continue our commitment to transparency and focus on driving shareholder value.” 

He continued, “While BrightSpire Capital is our new name, we are the same team. We look forward to continuing and growing relationships with our many clients and constituents.”
