Donald Jennewein, Michael Strober, Nathan Lynch lead Tampa-based mortgage banking team
Tampa, Fla. (Jan. 23, 2017) – Donald Jennewein, Michael Strober and Nathan Lynch, three of the leading mortgage bankers in the Central Florida market, have joined Colliers International to lead a new capital markets team to support the firm’s Florida offices.
The addition of this team marks a major entry into commercial mortgage banking in the primary commercial markets in the state.
Strober and Jennewein both joined the firm as Senior Managing Directors of Capital Markets, while Lynch joins as Managing Director. They bring significant experience in mortgage banking from another national commercial real estate firm.
The capital markets team, based in Tampa, will work closely with Colliers’ brokers, particularly investment sales teams, to provide debt and equity financing services related to all property types, including office, retail, industrial, multifamily, mixed-use and medical.
Jennewein has over 25 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry with transactions that total more than $5 billion, predominantly in the retail, multifamily, office and industrial sectors. He also has significant experience with loan origination, underwriting, appraisal, coordination of loan closings, cultivation of developer clients and negotiation of loan terms.
Strober has over 40 years of experience in real estate finance and investments. He specializes in structuring debt and equity for both the private and public sectors of the commercial real estate industry. Strober represents investors in the United States and Canada, and has been involved in national transactions that total over $10 billion.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to grow a capital markets team for a firm with such a strong presence in Florida’s commercial real estate market,” said Strober. “With Colliers we are able to expand our mortgage banking geographic footprint and grow our client base.”
Lynch has over 10 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry. Over the last two years, he originated $400 million in loans in the United States and the United Kingdom. His loan origination experience includes construction and permanent finance, specializing in retail, multifamily, office, hospitality and industrial.
“Donnie, Michael, and Nathan bring mortgage banking relationships and resources that will complement our strength in investment sales across the state to create a robust capital markets platform,” said Ryan Kratz, President of Colliers International Tampa Bay, Central & Southwest Florida. “This team will allow us to provide more comprehensive service and expertise to help clients accomplish their commercial real estate capital markets goals.”
Colliers also hired team members John Charles (JC) Tacot as Associate and Lidia Rodriguez as Production Analyst to support the capital markets team. Both previously worked with Strober, Jennewein and Lynch.
“With Colliers’ collaborative environment, substantial property sales activity, and their focus on providing customized client services, this career move felt like a natural fit,” said Jennewein.
