Trimont Real Estate has recruited three staffers from Cohen Financial to help it meet rising demand for due-diligence and advisory services.
Kevin Miller, Beau Jones and Geoff Hunerdosse have signed on to start later this month in Dallas. Miller is joining as a managing director, and Hunerdosse as a director of asset underwriting and advisory services. Jones will be a director of client services. All three are new positions.
Miller spent five years at Chicago-based Cohen, where his duties included loan underwriting and property and loan due diligence. Before that, he worked at Aperio Advisors, Situs and J.P. Morgan.
Jones was at Cohen for nearly two years, focused on building and managing relationships and expanding business opportunities. Before that, he was a principal at Birdsey Group and worked at Prudential Asset Resources and Situs. The move to Trimont is a return — he previously spent nine years there, ending in 2007. In his new post, he’ll report to client services managing director Kimberly Carter.
Hunerdosse performed underwriting and asset management duties during his two-and-a-half years at Cohen. Earlier, he worked at Midland Loan Services and PNC Real Estate Finance. He and Miller report to senior managing director Mitchell Hunter, who oversees the Central U.S. for Trimont.
The hires bring the headcount in Trimont’s underwriting group to 14, not including contractors, and the client services team to two.
