Trimont Expands and Promotes APAC Team, Celebrates Two-year Office Anniversary in Sydney
Global commercial real estate finance company announces new hires and executive promotions following rapid success in the Asia-Pacific region
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (May 24, 2021) – Trimont, the industry leader for commercial real estate lenders and investors, has announced the expansion of its Asia-Pacific team after a successful two years in operation. The global real estate company – which boasts eight offices including its American headquarters in Atlanta – promoted two of its highly valued executive leaders in Sydney, in addition to new hires.
The announcement includes the promotions of Rebecca Percossi, from Managing Director to Senior Managing Director, APAC; and Esther Ang, Head of Facility Agency to Managing Director, Credit & Asset Management, APAC. New appointments filling high-profile Senior Associate roles include Florence Nunu and Myra Mengyuan Zhang.
Trimont’s rapid expansion in the Asia-Pacific is attributed to the business’ unprecedented success in the region over the past 24 months. The APAC team has rapidly increased Trimont’s global footprint and been tremendous in utilizing leading technologies in order to provide an unparalleled level of service to clients.
“From day one, our goal in the Sydney office was to further establish global connectivity, which we’ve been able to do successfully thanks to strong leadership at the helm,” said Brian Ward, Trimont’s Global CEO. “We’re extremely proud of Rebecca and Esther and all our APAC team, including our new hires who will undoubtedly help take us to the next level and contribute to the overall health and growth of the business.”
Percossi, who joined Trimont in 2019 to launch the office in Sydney, leads the APAC business with overall responsibility for Trimont’s investment advisory services, credit and asset management, and operational services across the region. Hailing from an extensive finance and real estate background, Rebecca spent three years as Director at PwC in London working within the Real Estate Deals team with a responsibility for the management of the restructuring team. Ang, who also joined the team in 2019, leads Trimont’s APAC Operational Services team, focusing on facility and security agency functions for the company. Esther brings extensive financial services experience to the company, having spent more than 12 years with Perpetual Limited, most recently heading its agency and trustee services business.
In their Senior Associate roles, Nunu and Mengyuan Zhang are supporting Credit & Asset Managers with monitoring and prompting borrower compliance with covenants, evaluating and processing borrower consent requests, real-time assessment of risk profiles of real estate loans in the assigned portfolio, monitoring of interest billing and collection, and client reporting.
Percossi commented: “We are delighted to welcome Florence and Myra to our team in Sydney and celebrate the overall expansion of our company in the Asia-Pacific. After a year of unprecedented challenges, we hope to continue our growth and remain a committed and trusting source to our clients.”
