Two Executives Join Passco’s C-Suite

Irvine, CA-based Passco Companies LLC promoted Alan Clifton to COO and Suzy Cottle to CFO as part of the company’s efforts to acquire more than $1 billion in CRE this year.

Clifton’s new role involves negotiating and securing financing for new acquisitions, as well as maturing asset loans. He will oversee operations for Passco Property Management and Passco Management Services, as well as continuing his role within Passco Companies Development.

Cottle, who has been with Passco since 2004, will be responsible for all financial reporting, risk management and strategic banking relationships for the company and its affiliates.

Passco’s Larry Sullivan said, “Alan and Suzy have continuously demonstrated their expertise in real estate, and will both be key to our smooth operations, financing, and investor reporting as we rapidly grow this year. By design, we’re readying our own infrastructure to ensure a positive experience for our clients, investors, partners and colleagues.”
