CHICAGO-Cohen Financial has named Michael E. Grant director of capital markets in its office here. The national real estate capital services firm has appointed the 30-year real estate veteran to work securing financing for its Midwestern clients and to expand its relationships with life insurance companies across the country. Grant comes from work as SVP in retail mortgage banking in Capmark’s Chicago office, where he oversaw originating commercial real estate debt and equity transactions.

“Michael’s appointment will further our lending relationship with life insurance companies and our professional reach across the Midwest marketplace,” says Jack Cohen, CEO of Cohen. “He brings a keen appreciation for both lender and borrower needs, which will definitely benefit our clients in this current economic climate.” During the course of his career, Grant has been responsible for several billions of dollars in commercial real estate financing transactions.

Grant spent more than three years with Capmark, during which he acted as the company’s coordinator related to ING Investment Management. Previous to that, Grant was SVP, director, principal and head of production at Mid-North Financial Services Inc. He served as president of the Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association in 1987, and received his bachelor of science degree from the University of Wisconsin and a law degree from Loyola University.

“I am extremely pleased to be working with Cohen Financial and look forward to enhancing the firm’s life company relationships and Midwestern client reach,” Grant says. “Additionally, my goal is to be active and aggressive in securing real estate financing business.”
