NorthMarq Capital Appoints Blake Melstrom as Vice President of Los Angeles Office

LOS ANGELES (May 5, 2014) – The Los Angeles office of NorthMarq Capital announced that Blake Melstrom has joined its production group as a vice president. Melstrom most recently served as vice president at Pacific Southwest Realty Services in Irvine, California where he recently closed in excess of $100 million in commercial real estate loans. At Pacific Southwest he was responsible for the entire loan process and interactions on a daily basis with clients and lenders. Before assuming his role as vice president, Melstrom worked at Pacific Southwest as first an intern and then senior analyst.

Melstrom graduated from California State University of Fullerton where he received a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree with a Finance major and emphasis in Real Estate.

“We are very excited that Blake has decided to join us and he will be a dynamic long term NorthMarq employee with tremendous growth potential,” said Michael Elmore, executive vice president of NorthMarq Capital’s Los Angeles office.  “Blake fits our local and company culture and will greatly benefit from a substantially expanded group of capital providers, personal mentoring from our group, and a progressive compensation schedule.”

“We are very selective in the individuals we hire as we like to limit internal competition and prefer to compete externally as well as our focus on profitability not staffing size. We would like to find one more person like Blake but we know it will be difficult.”
