“Las Vegas is a great fit for our business, especially given the increase in demand for multi-family loans. Since multifamily financing is a significant part of our platform, we want to be more available to clients in Las Vegas,” said Jeff Weidell, president-NorthMarq Capital. Weidell oversees the western half of the United States from his office in San Francisco. “Our Nevada office enhances our strong presence in the western US and we are seeing significant activity in the Las Vegas area.”

His background includes experience in banking, equity and debt and portfolio management. He holds a BS in Finance and an MBA in Real Estate and is a member of Harvard University’s Advanced Management Development Program in Real Estate.

He is a public speaker in the subject of economics and global trade and is the author of a weekly economic newsletter, “The Powell Perspective” and of “Standing in the Rain,” a business guide to understanding, surviving and thriving in the current financial environment. He has also served as a national trustee for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.

Marcy Olson joins Powell in the Las Vegas office as a producer.
