Charlotte, NC (June 23, 2022) – NewPoint Real Estate Capital LLC (“NewPoint”) announces the hiring of Henry “Skip” Martinson as Managing Director, Conventional Originations. Based out of Charlotte, NC, Martinson will play a pivotal role in the firm’s Agency and Proprietary Lending Platforms, focusing specifically on conventional multifamily and student housing properties.
Martinson joins NewPoint with over two decades of commercial real estate finance and loan originations experience, leveraging an accomplished track record of executing large-scale transactions for a clientele of regional developers, REITs and institutional investors. Throughout his 15 years at PNC Real Estate, Martinson originated loans for a variety of multifamily property types – including conventional multifamily as well as student, affordable and seniors housing – with an initial focus on the Southeast before shifting his scope to the entire Eastern US. Prior to PNC, Martinson originated Agency, conduit and structured finance loans across the Southeast with Arbor Realty Trust. Before Arbor, he was with Wells Fargo’s Real Estate Merchant Banking group working to source and underwrite highly structured bridge and mezzanine loans.
“I’m excited to join a dynamic, forward-thinking group of leaders dedicated to pioneering creative solutions for multifamily investors,” said Martinson. “Alongside my colleagues at NewPoint, I’m committed to executing on financing offerings to meet the needs of our evolving markets.”
Leveraging his diverse industry experience, Martinson is well-positioned to make an immediate impact as NewPoint continues to expand its unique lending solutions nationwide, particularly in the Sun Belt region.
