DENVER-Hanover Financial Co., a direct source of capital offering joint venture real estate equity, has opened a Denver office. The Los Angeles-based company targets the ”middle market” for the development and acquisition of retail, multi-family, industrial and offices.

Hanover is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marcus & Millichap.

In Denver, it hired Brent Tharp as the central regional director to run the office.

Tharp will be responsible for the firm’s equity investments in Colorado, as well as managing the firm’s national single tenant, net-leased business.

Prior to joining Hanover, Tharp was a vice president and originator for JP Morgan Mortgage Capital, a division of JP Morgan Chase. At JPMMC, Tharp was responsible for originating fixed and floating-rate debt on commercial properties throughout the western US. Before that, Tharp opened Heller Real Estate Financial Service’s office in Denver in 1996. From 1996 to 1999, his Heller office generated 95 transactions in excess of $440 million, including 16 equity transactions.

Prior to opening Heller’s Denver office, he was western region portfolio manager for Heller’s Los Angeles office, where he was responsible for a $800-million structured-finance portfolio on the West Coast that included underwriting and closing more than 50 equity transactions.
