Hunt Mortgage Group, a commercial real estate lender, announced today that Paul Angle has joined the firm as Managing Director. In this role he will source and originate both agency and balance sheet loans on the West Coast. Hunt Mortgage Group’s balance sheet loans are sourced through the Proprietary Loan Platform that was established earlier this year to extend the firm’s lending capability for both bridge lending and permanent financing, and to finance commercial properties in a variety of asset classes. Angle will report to Bill Hyman, Senior Managing Director at Hunt Mortgage Group and will operate out of the firm’s Irvine, California office.

“Paul is a seasoned commercial real estate finance professional with extensive experience and leadership in commercial mortgage origination,” noted Hyman. “He has a proven track record for success and had deep relationships with a broad client base. We are pleased to add someone with his knowledge and skills that can originate both agency and balance sheet loans.”

Angle comes to Hunt Mortgage Group from CIBC World Markets where he served as a Managing Director. During his tenure there he concentrated on West coast originations and managing a staff of eight. Before that he spent three years at Freddie Mac as the Regional Managing Director in Los Angeles. Prior to Freddie Mac, Angle held various management positions at a number of firms, including Nomura Securities, Credit Suisse, LaSalle Bank, and Column Financial.

He earned a BS in Accounting/Finance from the University of South Carolina.
