DENVER-Bill Swackhamer, most recently managing director for MMA Realty Capital, is now overseeing all asset management responsibilities for Transwestern Investment Co.’s mezzanine investment portfolio. He will do so as managing director of Transwestern Realty Finance Partners LLC, the subsidiary through which Transwestern manages its high-yield and fixed-income real estate principal investment activities. Swackhamer also will be involved in investment origination for the Western US.

At MMA, Swackhamer was responsible for loan origination for the bridge, mezzanine and permanent loan programs. Prior to MMA, he was with MONY Realty Capital for 18 years, most recently as and was a leader in the asset management group responsible for repositioning and re-trading $2.4 billion in real estate for MONY Life. His experience includes loan origination, joint ventures, redevelopment, workouts and dispositions, as well engineering and construction.

Transwestern chief executive Stephan Quazzo says Swackhamer is a known quantity, having “worked closely” with the firm for almost a decade. Thomas McCahill, a managing director with Transwestern Realty Finance Partners, says Swackhamer’s contacts will have “an immediate, positive impact.” Swackhamer was not immediately available Monday afternoon for comment.

Transwestern Investment’s current equity portfolio includes 60 office and nine retail properties totaling 19 million sf, as well as 3,800 apartment units. Transwestern Realty Finance Partners’ high yield and fixed income real estate principal investment activities include Transwestern Mezzanine Realty Partners III LLC, an institutional real estate fund that makes mezzanine loans for office, multifamily, retail, industrial, hotel and mixed-use properties in the US.
