NEW YORK CITY—Greystone has hired Nikhil Kanodia as a managing director. He joins the mortgage provider from Deutsche Bank’s real estate, gaming, lodging and leisure investment banking group, where he spent 10 years covering clients and executing capital market and mergers and acquisitions transactions totaling over $40 billion.

In Kanodia’s new role, he will focus on managing client relationships with various real estate owners, originating new loans and identifying opportunities for new initiatives in the marketplace. “I saw the role with Greystone as an opportunity to work with an extremely talented leadership team that has built one of the largest and most successful multifamily and healthcare real estate lending platforms out there today,” he says. “I am excited to have the chance to help further grow the business and be a part of its future success.”

“Nikhil’s deep experience in providing best-in-class advisory services to real estate clients and his expertise in structuring capital markets transactions will be an incredible and immediate asset to Greystone and to our clients, as we continue to expand our debt, equity, and advisory services for property owners,” says Mordecai Rosenberg, managing director.

Greystone provides mortgage finance solutions across multiple platforms—including FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, USDA, CMBS, bridge, mezzanine and other proprietary loan programs—to multifamily and healthcare borrowers.
