Mike Landon has joined the Dallas loan origination office of Berkadia Commercial Mortgage as a senior vice president. He will be an integral part of the Texas mortgage banking team, which is led by Dallas-based Senior Vice President Mike Bryant and includes Senior Vice President John Koeijmans, also in Dallas, and Senior Vice President Brant Smith in Austin.
Landon, a highly-experienced mortgage banker, previously worked with Grubb and Ellis Capital Markets Group. Earlier, he operated a private enterprise in Dallas and Austin that was an intermediary providing third-party debt and equity capital to commercial real estate clients.
“Members of our team have known Mike for many years as an associate, competitor and collaborator on deals. We are excited to be joining forces with him as we continue to grow our platform in the Texas market,” said Bryant. “Mike, like recent hires Brant Smith and Andy Hill, has long standing relationships with numerous insurance companies and borrowers across the country. Adding a seasoned professional like Mike will help us meet the increasing capital demands of our broad base of clients. With more capital becoming available from the insurance company sector, GSEs and other lenders, we are seeing a welcome uptick in activity after the lull in commercial assignments over the past two years.”
Landon has a bachelor of business administration degree in Finance from The University of Texas at Austin.
