Civic Financial Services
has announced the addition of real estate and commercial lending executive Brian Murphy. Murphy brings to CIVIC more than 16 years of experience in the investment and lending arenas, most recently serving as
Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Los Angeles-based Wilshire Finance Partners.
Throughout his career, Murphy has been a producer in wholesale, retail and correspondent, as well as commercial, multifamily and value-add bridge lending. In addition to sales and operations management, Brian’s experience consists of underwriting, valuation, acquisition and development, and special situation loans that require risk mitigation or special structure.
“Brian’s leadership, talent, and extensive track record of multifamily and business development has quickly made him a valued member of the CIVIC family,” said William J. Tessar, President of CIVIC. “He has carved a first-class reputation as a high producer and expert of structuring transactions, and we are honored he has chosen CIVIC as his platform to scale multifamily.”
“CIVIC is committed to growth. Its unique positioning and strategic, vertical approach breeds synergy and opportunity,” said Murphy. “You can feel it when you enter the office, you can feel it when you talk to the team members, and you can see it in the growth trajectory the last four years. CIVIC has proven they are experts in residential rehab loans and construction management with some of the fastest draw request times in the industry, and I’m confident our borrowers will appreciate the efficiency our multifamily platform offers.”
