November 1, 2017

Director Beau Williams and Vice President Raymond Salameh Join National Capital Markets Advisory

Mission Capital Advisors today announced the hiring of Beau Williams as director and Raymond Salameh as vice president in the firm’s Debt and Equity Finance Group. Both professionals will be based in Mission’s New York City headquarters, and will be responsible for the origination, structuring and placement of commercial real estate capital on behalf of owners, investors, developers, family offices and private equity firms nationwide as well as assisting on select asset sales opportunities. Williams and Salameh will structure financing and asset sales for the firm’s clients across the hospitality, retail, office, multifamily and industrial sectors.

“Beau’s hospitality finance experience throughout his career was extremely attractive to us as we look to build on our strengths and continue expanding our team,” said Jordan Ray, principal of Mission Capital’s Debt & Equity Finance Group. “We look forward to leveraging Beau’s experience to remain a frontrunner in this space.”

Prior to this position, Williams was with Meridian Capital Group, where he focused on hotel debt and equity. In his time at Meridian, Williams executed over $200 million in hotel financings. Earlier in his career, Williams served as a director with both Wyndham Hotel Group and Northcott Hospitality. He graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications.

“Mission Capital’s culture is extremely unique, and I knew from the very start that my input would be valued,” said Williams. “I consider Mission somewhat of an anti-brokerage, an organization where each individual is recognized as a valued member of a unified team. I’m eager to work alongside the best and brightest in the industry to secure capital for some of the most innovative hospitality projects out there.”

Salameh was formerly a senior associate at HKS Capital Partners, where he focused on originating and structuring real estate capital for corporate clients, real estate developers and investors. Over the course of his career, he closed approximately $160 million of capital across several asset classes. Salameh graduated from Binghamton University’s School of Management with a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Management.

“Mission Capital has a reputation as a collaborative, technology-driven debt and equity brokerage, and I was eager to join this growing platform and help contribute to their expansion,” added Salameh.

Under the leadership of Ray and Mission Capital Founder and Principal David Tobin, Mission Capital’s Debt and Equity Finance Group has expanded within the past few years from a two-person team into a national mortgage and equity powerhouse with 25 professionals, approximately $2 billion in annual volume, and activity in every major market.

“Both Beau and Raymond are exactly the type of professionals that we look for – extremely driven and the best at what they do,” said Tobin. “The market expertise they bring to the table will be a major asset for Mission as we continue our national expansion.”
