Top Addition for Walker & Dunlop’s CMBS Platform
- Apr 04, 2016
Bethesda, Md.—Walker & Dunlop (W&D) recently recruited veteran Mitch Resnick, former Freddie Mac and Goldman Sachs VP, as managing director of Walker & Dunlop Commercial Property Funding LLC (WDCPF), the company’s CMBS lending platform. He will join the company in late April, overseeing WDCPF’s capital markets executions with responsibility over pricing, hedging, securitizations, and investor relations.
Resnick joined Freddie Mac in November 2011, and during his four and a half years with the enterprise, served as vice president of capital markets, managing the K-deal and other securitization programs. W&D has contributed more than $13 billion of loans into Freddie Mac K-Series securitizations since 2009, working closely with Resnick and his capital markets team. Prior to that role, he spent nearly 15 years with Goldman Sachs, serving as vice president within the firm’s real estate finance group.
Resnick holds a Bachelor of Science in finance and financial management services from the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated in 1994.
“In January, we brought Bob Restrick on board to lead our CMBS team, and Mitch’s arrival significantly enhances the depth and expertise inside this lending platform,” said Willy Walker, chairman & CEO of W&D, in prepared remarks. “Mitch will add significant long-term value to our CMBS platform and company,” added Bob Restrick, WDCPF’s recently appointed CEO.
