NEWARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prudential Mortgage Capital Company has expanded its multifamily team, naming Patrick McAllister and Laurie Morfin directors of multifamily originations. Prudential Mortgage Capital Company is the Newark, N.J.-based commercial mortgage lending business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE: PRU).
McAllister, based in the company’s San Francisco office, and Morfin, based in a new Carlsbad, Calif., office, are responsible for originating loans nationally on behalf of the company’s agency lending business, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Both report to Jim Hensley, a principal and agency production manager for Prudential Mortgage Capital Company’s multifamily team.
“The multifamily market has been a strong performer in the current economic climate as people choose to rent, putting off home ownership due to concerns about the job market following the 2008 financial crisis. We believe that will continue to be the case for the next three to five years,” Hensley said. “We wanted to expand our capability in this area, and having Patrick and Laurie join the team brings 30 years of combined experience to our multifamily loan origination team. Both will be excellent additions and will allow us to expand the superior service and certainty of execution our borrowers have come to expect.”
Before joining Prudential, McAllister was a director and originator for Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital. He also held senior positions at Cohen Financial and Eastdil Realty.

Earlier, she was a director of Wells Fargo’s CMBS Origination Group responsible for originating and closing CMBS loans.
