“I look forward to co-managing the Salt Lake City office, along with my mentor John Bradshaw. I think we have a great future ahead of us, and having all of the tools and resources that being part of NorthMarq has brought to the table will enable us to provide the best financing solutions to our clients for years to come,” said Barnson.
