Walker & Dunlop Debuts All-Female Small Balance Lending Leadership Team
Bethesda, MD-based commercial real estate finance and advisory services firm Walker & Dunlop, Inc. has promoted four members of its small balance group (SBG) and in doing so has the first all-women-led lending team at the company. The team will be responsible for setting and executing on the SBG strategic direction in partnership with executive leadership to ensure alignment throughout the organization.
Alison Williams has been named SVP and group head of SBG and will oversee the SBG production, underwriting and closing teams.
Angelica Dichoco, who received her Fannie Mae CU designation last year, will continue leading the SBG underwriting team as SVP and chief underwriter. Stephanie Pratt will continue leading the SBG cosing team in her new role as SVP of SBG closing. Melissa Jahnke will manage SBG operations in her new role as head of operations.
“We are very focused on growing our small balance lending platform, and the talent of these leaders will enable us to continue growing market share in the multifamily segment at Walker & Dunlop,” said Steve Theobald, EVP and COO of Walker & Dunlop.
