NEWPORT BEACH, CA— has learned exclusively that Land Advisors Capital of California has rebranded itself as Landmark Capital Advisors, a name the firm hopes will reflect on its expanded focus on both commercial real estate and residential land. The real estate capital advisory firm, which has offices here and in the San Francisco Bay area, arranges equity and debt for residential homebuilders and land developers.

In addition, the company has hired David Kidder as managing director to lead its expansion into the commercial sector. Kidder brings more than 15 years of commercial real estate experience across all major asset classes, with an emphasis on structuring equity and debt for middle-market real estate operators. Before joining Landmark, he worked for ACRE Capital, a subsidiary of Ares Commercial Real Estate, a publicly traded specialty-finance REIT listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Kidder’s experience also includes roles with Appian Capital and HG Capital, both principal joint-venture equity investors, as well as Knightsbridge Realty Capital and Julien J. Studley.
