Piper Sandler Adds Two to Real Estate Investment Banking Team

Minneapolis-based Piper Sandler Companies has added Peter Fish and Mark Stierman as managing directors to its real estate investment banking team within the financial services group.

Fish joins the firm’s Atlanta office and will focus on financial advisory and equity capital raising transactions for real estate operators. Stierman joins the New York office and will be focusing on advisory and capital raising assignments for private real estate operators and real estate fund sponsors.

Previously, Fish was a managing director at Raymond James in the investment banking group focused on real estate private placements. Prior to Raymond James, Fish was a private equity placement agent and head of the real estate group at Fortress Group, Inc. Stierman worked at Robert A. Stanger & Co. for nearly 28 years, most recently as an executive managing director.

“We are excited to welcome Peter and Mark as we expand our team’s pre-IPO and M&A capabilities,” said Tom Howland, managing director and head of real estate investment banking. “Their combined 50-plus years of experience in real estate will contribute significantly to building a more robust advisory practice.”
