Pacific Oak Capital Markets Group LLC, a wholesaler and managing broker-dealer for alternative investment offerings, has hired financial industry veteran Jeff Namendorf as senior regional vice president to oversee sales in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.
Namendorf began his career in financial services 30 years ago as an advisor. He transitioned to the wholesale side of the business and has sold mutual funds, annuities and alternative investments. Most recently he was vice president regional director at Black Creek Capital Markets, where he was recognized as the all-time top producer, the company said.
In his role as senior regional vice president, Namendorf will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with financial intermediaries in the broker-dealer, regional independent and RIA channels.
“Pacific Oak is in a significant expansion mode and Jeff is another strategic hire who can hit the ground running as we head into the new year,” said Mick Manning, chief executive officer of Pacific Oak Capital Markets Group. “Jeff’s in-depth experience across a broad range of investment strategies will benefit advisors and their clients seeking compelling, non-correlated financial solutions that address a variety of needs.”
Earlier this month, the company hired Chris Lockwood as senior regional vice president for the Southeast region, Rigo Medina as senior regional vice president for the Southern California region, and Erica Blue as senior internal sales associate.
Pacific Oak sponsors Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT Inc., a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust, which merged with Pacific Oak Strategic Opportunity REIT II Inc. in October.
