Walker & Dunlop Grows Affordable Finance Team with NJ-Based Managing Director
Walker & Dunlop, Inc. has grown its affordable housing finance team with the addition of P.J. McDevitt as managing director, based in New Jersey. McDevitt will drive loan origination growth nationally to help address the country’s significant need for affordable housing.
Jogn Ducey, chief production officer of Walker & Dunlop’s affordable lending group, said, “As exemplified by our recently-announced agreement to acquire Alliant Capital, Walker & Dunlop remains focused on maintaining and growing its leadership position in the affordable housing sector. P.J.’s deep knowledge of affordable housing finance is a great addition to our already formidable and experienced affordable housing team.”
Since 2018, McDevitt has been involved in the origination, underwriting, and closing of nearly $1 billion in affordable housing transactions. Before joining Walker & Dunlop, Mr. McDevitt served as a director at Greystone, where he was responsible for the origination of affordable multifamily housing loans for five years.
