LOS ANGELES–Coretrust Capital Partners has added Esther Garrison as vice president and controller. Garrison, a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Treasury Professional, will be in charge of the company’s accounting, finance and treasury functions, as well as all financial reporting.
“With 14 years of experience in corporate accounting, treasury, and financial reporting in the real estate industry plus four years in public accounting, Ms. Garrison is a highly regarded financial professional in our industry,” Robert Morgan, Coretrust CFO, said in prepared remarks. Morgan noted that he and principals of Coretrust, Thomas Ricci, Randall Scott and John Sischo, worked closely with Garrison at Thomas Properties Group where she served as vice president of Financial Reporting.
Garrison started her career in public accounting with Arthur Andersen LLP, after receiving her accounting degree from Loyola Marymount University. She then moved into corporate assistant controller and finance positions at Pacific Coast Capital Partners and Watt Commercial Properties. She joined TPGI in 2007 as vice president of financial reporting. When TPGI was sold in 2013, she became director of financial reporting at Hudson Pacific Properties where she managed all SEC filings, corporate treasury, and played a key role in the accounting and finance management team.
“The recent establishment of our Coretrust Value Fund I LP with Hawkeye Partners LP led us to strengthen our financial and internal control infrastructure,” added Thomas Ricci, Coretrust principal. “Esther has the experience and capabilities that we need and, equally important, we have worked with her and trust her judgment and integrity.”
Hawkeye, which identifies next generation real estate investment managers, selected Coretrust as one of these companies and has made an initial $200 million commitment to the fund.
