LOS ANGELES—Hitting another growth spurt, TruAmerica Multifamily has hired four new staff members to its asset management and acquisitions teams. The new hires will be based in the firm’s Los Angles and Newport Beach offices.
“We are excited to expand our talented team with these strategic additions in our Los Angeles and Newport Beach offices,” says Robert Hart, president, founder and CEO of TruAmerica Multifamily. “The collective depth of their experience will strengthen our platform as we continue to grow the multi-state footprint of our nearly 10,000-unit multifamily management portfolio.” Among the new staff additions is Lynn Owen, senior managing director of asset management and portfolio operations, Mark Enfield, chief administrative officer, Tammi Warner, senior transaction manager, and Zach Rivas, acquisitions associate.
With 28 years of experience in property management operations, Owen is the most senior of the new hires. In this role, she will oversee the firm’s asset management and property operations. She comes to the firm from Greystar Real Estate Partners, where she served as senior director.
Enfield has 14 years of experience in real estate finance and asset management. He will use his vast experience in this new role to strategically advise all aspects of TruAmerica Mulitfamily’s operations, from portfolio reporting to corporate governance.
Warner brings 15 years of experience in the multifamily finance sector, where, in addition to conventional multifamily properties, she has worked in senior and student housing. Previously a senior underwriter at Walker & Dunlop LLC and Capmark Finance Inc., Warner will manage TruAmerica’s transactions, ensuring that all due diligence, loan procurement and equity partner coordination guidelines are met.
As acquisitions associate, Rivas will provide aid where needed in the acquisitions process. He comes to TruAmerica from JLL‘s multifamily capital markets group, where he severed as an analyst and associate.
These staff hires are another indication of TruAmerica’s continual rise in the multifamily sector. In an earlier story, GlobeSt.com reported that the firm is on schedule to achieve its goal of $1 billion in property values by the year 2015.
