New York—Hunt Mortgage Group has named James Flynn as its new president, effective immediately.
Of course, Flynn is no stranger to the organization, having served as the company’s executive managing director & chief investment officer over the past 18 months, and being a part of the company for nearly a decade.
“Jim is a seasoned commercial real estate finance executive with a rich and diverse background and solid leadership experience,” Chris Hunt, Hunt Cos. CEO, said in a prepared release. “Jim has been with Hunt Mortgage Group for almost 10 years in a variety of leadership capacities. His background and work experience make him well qualified for this key leadership role.”
As executive managing director & CIO, Flynn was responsible for overseeing the day-to-day business activity of the company. He will keep the title of CIO going forward.
Throughout his career at Hunt Mortgage Group, Flynn has worked in all aspects of commercial real estate, including: capital raising, business development, investment and asset management. Previously he served as a portfolio manager for the firm’s commercial mortgage REIT, raised public equity capital, and served in several critical advisory roles for the firm’s CMBS and high-yield debt funds.
At one time he also led special servicing, the REO and asset disposition units, and managed an equity portfolio consisting of 1,100 multifamily housing properties totaling more than 120,000 units.
“Jim’s track record of success throughout his career is impressive,” Hunt said. “I have great confidence in Jim’s experience and vision. I am convinced that under Jim’s leadership, Hunt Mortgage Group will continue on a path of tremendous national growth and expansion.”
