Newmark Capital Markets is pleased to announce that it has hired Christopher Kramer as Managing Director of Debt & Structured Finance, where his focus will be the facilitation and execution of the team’s financing transactions. Mr. Kramer will directly report to Vice Chairmen and Co-Heads, Debt & Structured Finance Dustin Stolly and Jordan Roeschlaub.
Mr. Kramer comes to Newmark Capital Markets from Societe Generale where he originated conduit loans and helped build out the CMBS platform from scratch to nearly $2 billion in volume. Prior to that, Mr. Kramer spent four years with Royal Bank of Scotland’s (RBS) CMBS platform. In that capacity, he worked on more than $3 billion in loan transactions during his time at RBS and Societe Generale and played a key role in several major CMBS deals closed in recent years, including the $1.76 billion acquisition financing for HNA Group’s $2.2 billion purchase of 245 Park Avenue. Mr. Kramer also previously worked at Arbor Realty Trust underwriting bridge, mezzanine, and agency loans.
