Greystone Adds Freddie Mac SVP to Multifamily Team 

Rich Martinez will join Greystone as an executive managing director, multifamily sales & production in mid-June, based in New York. In this newly created role, he will focus on new business growth for Greystone’s expanding multifamily platform as well as enhancing and optimizing the firm’s joint venture relationship with Cushman & Wakefield. 

Before joining Greystone, Martinez served as SVP of production & sales at Freddie Mac, where he worked for more than 34 years in a variety of assets classes and geographies. 

“Rich’s reputation as a creative and effective production driver in the multifamily debt space is well known and well deserved,” said Greystone CEO Steve Rosenberg. “I am excited to watch Rich further capitalize on the great potential of the Cushman/Greystone platform and am so thrilled he is joining our team as we remain laser-focused on being the undisputed leader in commercial real estate capital markets.”
