NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Greystone, a leading national commercial real estate finance company, announced that Adam Lipkin has joined Greystone Capital Advisors as a Vice President. He joins the capital solutions advisory group to leverage his deep capital markets knowledge and experience, including expertise in Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE), to help craft innovative debt and equity solutions for clients and originate large-loan agency and FHA opportunities within his extensive client network.
Mr. Lipkin has worked in the commercial real estate finance industry for nearly two decades, and joins Greystone from Counterpointe Sustainable Real Estate LLC, a direct lender for C-PACE, where he served as Executive Director. Prior to that role, he was a Vice President at Grandbridge Real Estate Capital where he arranged complex finance structures for CRE. Earlier in his career, Mr. Lipkin worked in capital advisory with HFF and a subsequent boutique advisory team, Olympian Capital Group, that arranged more than $2 billion in senior and mezzanine debt, preferred equity, and joint venture equity.

“Adam’s deep capital markets knowledge and unique expertise in C-PACE will be an invaluable asset to Greystone Capital Advisors, as we continue to broaden the range of capital solutions available to clients seeking to finance projects in today’s challenging environment,” said Drew Fletcher, President of Greystone Capital Advisors.
