Ryan Hodgdon recently joined Trez Capital, a private commercial real estate lender, as vice president of origination.
In addition, veteran real estate lender Caperton “Cap” Putt joined the company in April as managing director of the Atlanta office.
In his new role, Hodgdon is responsible for originating new commercial real estate loans primarily in Georgia, extending to Tennessee, Alabama and the Carolinas.
Hodgdon has nearly a decade of experience working in real estate finance. Immediately prior to joining Trez Capital, he was a senior vice president for Bank OZK in Atlanta, where he focused on construction and value-add projects between $3 million and $30 million.
Hodgdon started in the business at Trimont Real Estate Advisors, which managed distressed assets for Lehman Brothers. He also worked as a Portfolio Manager for Voya, originating $145 million worth of loans over two years.
Putt brings more than three decades of industry experience to Trez Capital. He most recently served as senior vice president-southeast market manager at Citizens Bank, NA.
Putt opened Citizens’ Atlanta office, built a team of lenders and underwriters, and was ultimately promoted to oversee both the Charlotte and Atlanta offices covering privately held real estate developers in the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
Before that, Putt spent eight years as senior vice president-regional credit officer at Iberiabank (formerly Georgia Commerce Bank before it was acquired by Iberiabank in 2015). His lending experience includes construction and property acquisition financing for multifamily, office, industrial, retail and land transactions.
