Megatel Capital Investment (MCI), the capital markets division of The Megatel Group, has hired Sean Boyd as vice president of national accounts. In his new role, Boyd is responsible for relationship management and business development efforts with broker-dealers and registered investment advisors throughout the United States.
Boyd brings more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry to his new role, including experience in private placements, publicly registered offerings, and business development. He most recently served as vice president of national accounts with Hartman Income REIT Management Inc., where he was responsible for managing the firm’s broker-dealer relationships and initiatives.
“Sean Boyd is a well-respected and experienced leader in the alternative investment space and a great addition to our team of sales professionals,” said Trey Hoppe, MCI’s executive vice president and managing director. “As we continue to introduce exciting new products into the alternative investment space, it is essential that MCI continue to attract the best and brightest to support those efforts. Sean Boyd fits that description to a tee, and we couldn’t be more pleased to welcome him to Megatel Capital Investment.”
Prior to joining Hartman, Boyd spent nearly 15 years as vice president of national accounts with Black Creek Group (formerly known as Dividend Capital), where he played a key role in the establishment and management of a selling group that raised approximately $9 billion in equity capital, the company said.
Previously, he held various positions at INVESCO Funds Group. He holds a bachelor’s degree in finance from Colorado State University and FINRA Series 6, 7 and 63 licenses.
Boyd’s hiring continues the recent expansion of MCI’s distribution team, which in August added Andrew Nerney as regional vice president responsible for sales in the company’s midwestern territory.
The growth of MCI’s sales team comes on the heels of its recent announcement that it has expanded its investment offerings to include multifamily-focused securities programs that are complementary to its parent-company’s “Rent Back” incentive program, which is designed to help bridge the gap between renting and homeownership by offering renters a credit of their previous year of rent to be applied towards upfront home purchase costs.
Megatel Capital Investment is the capital markets division of The Megatel Group, which is the parent company of MCI and Megatel Homes Inc. Megatel Capital Investment funds help fund the construction of homes built by Megatel as an additional source of construction financing. Founded in 2006, Megatel Homes has emerged as one of largest homebuilders in Texas, with more than 100 developments comprised of several thousand homes completed since its founding.
