THE WOODLANDS, TX-Richard Zigler has made the move from Kaplan Acquisitions to LMI Capital Inc. In his new role, Zigler will take marketing, analysis and research skills gained from previous positions at Kaplan and as managing director at O’Connor & Associates to provide lenders, borrowers and others in the financial field with up-to-date information and trends.

“We have some great guys who are bringing the business in,” Zigler explains. “What I’ll be able to do is support those guys, and be someone the clients can reach with questions or other issues.” Additionally, Zigler says, he’ll head up marketing research, analysis and provide backup support to his colleagues. “My hands will be in a little bit of everything,” he comments.

Zigler acknowledges he’d been looking for a new position, though says his departure from Kaplan Acquisitions last summer was amicable. He says he’d turned down a variety of job offers before LMI came along.

“I’ve known Ken (Lawrence, LMI’s principal) and the guys here for more than 10 years,” Zigler explains. “They were clients of ours while I was at O’Connor, and I’d been looking for the right opportunity for a new position.” He tells GlobeSt.com he’d touched base with Lawrence during the holidays and “he suggested we talk, and work together in a way that would make sense for all of us.”

Before joining Kaplan Acquisitions in 2006, Zigler served a more than seven-year stint at O’Connor & Associates. The more than 13 years combined experience on all sides of the research and analysis side of real estate will benefit LMI Capital, he explains.

“A lot of the lenders and equity providers working with LMI are people I dealt with from the ‘third side’ of the conference table at Kaplan,” Zigler comments. “All of this gives me the ability to look at deals from the perspective of the actual borrower or owner, in addition to analyzing the actual financial background.”
