CBRE Aims To Expand National Debt Platform Under New DFW-Based Leadership

CBRE has tapped a new head of its debt and structured finance division for the U.S.

Rachel Vinson

Rachel Vinson, who most recently led operations for the firm’s global Capital Markets business and Americas Advisory Finance organization, will expand CBRE’s national debt platform in her new role as DSF president, according to a release.

The firm’s DSF department uses lender relationships and a proprietary tech platform to link clients to capital, according to its website.

“Rachel is a uniquely skilled real estate finance professional with a deep understanding of the commercial debt space,” CBRE’s Global President of DSF Brian Stoffers said in a statement. “She will provide invaluable leadership as we continue to grow our DSF business in the U.S. and further differentiate the breadth of the strategic advice we provide to borrowers and lenders.” 

DSF teams at CBRE closed $80B in loan production last year. Vinson, who is based in Dallas, spent six years at loan origination and finance servicing company Barings Multifamily Capital LLC before joining CBRE in 2019, per the release.

“I have always found that opportunity lies in the midst of disruption,” Vinson said in a statement to Bisnow. “The world and the business has changed over the last few years, and it will continue to change. We must respond accordingly. Now is the time to be bold.”
