Greystone Promotes Rich Martinez to Lead Agency Loan Origination

Rich Martinez has been promoted to head of production, agency lending at Greystone, after joining the commercial real estate finance firm in 2022 as executive managing director, multifamily sales & Production. He will lead all agency loan origination efforts, particularly market-rate multifamily for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. 

In his continued role as part of Greystone’s lending leadership team, Martinez will also focus on expanding Greystone’s institutional borrower network, recruiting and expansion geographically, and enhancing and optimizing the firm’s joint venture relationship with Cushman & Wakefield, which provides a comprehensive suite of advisory services to property investors nationwide. 

“Rich has made a significant impact on Greystone’s lending business already, and I am so thrilled that he will be taking on a larger role in expanding and growing our platform and reach in the multifamily sector,” said Chip Hudson, head of Greystone’s agency lending platform.
