Northmarq Atlanta strengthens its debt/equity operations with addition of Josh Darby

ATLANTA, GEORGIA (June 20, 2022) — Northmarq’s Atlanta debt/equity office recently welcomed Josh Darby, vice president, to their team. An Atlanta native, Darby has primarily worked as a lender in his career and has developed significant experience working with both commercial and multifamily properties. In the Atlanta office, he will tap into the company’s unmatched network of lending partners, as well as working in conjunction with an in-house investment sales team to deliver financing solutions for clients.

“I am very excited to hit the ground running with the Northmarq team,” explained Darby. “I was especially drawn to the company culture and the opportunity for continued growth of the platform in the southeast. The Atlanta debt and equity team, through collaboration with the investment sales platform and servicing group, works with an extensive group of lenders and does a great job for clients throughout the entire process. I cannot wait to join the team and provide the same quality service for my clients.”

Darby spent seven years in the commercial mortgage originations group at Allianz Real Estate of America, where he was most recently a director. After starting with Allianz in New York City in 2015, he moved to Atlanta to open a new office in 2017. Prior to his time at Allianz, Darby had stops at Hanover Street Capital and Aareal Capital in NYC.

“Josh made a great fit for our team and company,” said Faron Thompson, managing director. “We look forward to leveraging his previous experience and success in the industry to drive financial solutions for lenders and borrowers.”
