B2R Finance, a firm that lends to rental property investors, has appointed Darren Thompson as chief financial officer and executive vice president of strategy.
He replaces Evan Lorch, who recently left the company.
Thomson is responsible for oversight of the finance, accounting and control, risk, regulatory and corporate strategy functional areas; he will report to CEO Jason Hogg.
Thompson has over 30 years’ experience in the real estate and mortgage industries, including several executive leadership roles at prominent companies including American Express, Fannie Mae, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs. Most recently, Thompson was a founding partner of Railfield Partners, LLC, a real estate and financial services advisory and asset management boutique.
“Darren’s broad expertise ranges from capital efficiency and financial management to business innovation and strategic partnerships across a variety of industry verticals,” Hogg said in a press release Thursday.
“In our previous work together, Darren proved to be a dynamic leader and his addition to the B2R team ensures we are well positioned to continue to diversify our business.”
Thompson will be based in B2R’s New York office.
