Barclays Bulks Up West Coast CMBS Team

Barclays is expanding its West Coast staff that handles commercial mortgage-backed securities, the bank said July 12 in a release.

New hires John Boyt and Joshua Greene will reinforce the bank’s lending business in the western portion of the U.S.

Coming on as a director, Boyt has worked in commercial real estate finance and private equity for more than 17 years, with stints at Credit Suisse, Bear Stearns and Bankers Trust. Greene, who has joined Barclays as a vice president, has worked for Bear Stearns, Nomura Securities, and Forester Properties, a real estate private equity investment firm.

Prior to their hire, Boyt and Green had a relationship with Barclays, having operated a joint venture with the bank that originated loans for CMBS, primarily in the Western U.S.
