Homestake Capital has hired a new director to help the firm add to its development and investment pipeline.
The new hire, Clark McIntyre, joins the Brielle-based firm with a focus on assisting with acquisition and risk analysis, deal structuring, pro forma development and asset management, according to a news release. He will work closely with Michael Kokes, the firm’s managing principal, to help it identify development opportunities that enhance its balance sheet.
“I am incredibly excited and humbled to be joining the Homestake team,” McIntyre said. “I have had the pleasure of getting to know Michael Kokes over the last year and have always been highly impressed by his incredibly nuanced understanding of project planning, real estate finance and the development process.
“Michael and his team have done a tremendous job of growing Homestake since its inception, and I am extremely enthusiastic at the prospect of helping the company elevate its status as one of the premier real estate investment firms in the Northeast.”
Prior to joining Homestake, McIntyre served as vice president of operations at Roger Mumford Homes, where he was responsible for land acquisition, project financing, contract negotiation and oversight of the firm’s multifamily asset holdings, the news release said. Prior to his involvement with Roger Mumford Homes, McIntyre worked for Union Gaming, a boutique investment bank and equity research firm specializing in the gaming and lodging industries.
He holds a bachelor’s in economics from the University of Michigan and a master’s in real estate from New York University, with a concentration in finance and investment.
“As Homestake continues to grow, we recognize that the addition of well-rounded, intelligent people will help us to unlock our full potential,” Kokes said. “We believe that Clark will be an asset to the team and will enable us to continue growing and moving in the right direction.
“We welcome Clark to the Homestake family and we know that his expertise and insights will be invaluable to us as we continue to build and grow the firm.”
