Lecocq Will Lead Capital Markets at CRG

CRG, the real estate arm of Clayco, has hired Mark Lecocq as SVP of finance. Based in Chicago, Lecocq will lead capital markets for the company’s expanding mixed-use and multifamily project portfolios.

Before joining CRG, Lecocq (pictured) spent nine years at The Fifield Companies, most recently as EVP of finance, development and acquisitions. During his tenure, the company’s portfolio of active projects included over 4,500 multifamily units valued at more than $2 billion in the Chicago, Austin, Dallas, Los Angeles and Miami markets.

“Mark brings key leadership to our team’s development and finance activities,” said CRG president Shawn Clark. “His extensive track record of originating and structuring institutional-grade projects strengthens confidence with our investors and allows him to hit the ground running.”

Lecocq observed, “I look forward to leveraging Clayco’s integrated platform to expand and capitalize CRG’s current pipeline of multifamily projects throughout the country.”
