Metropolitan Capital Advisors is proud to announce a feature of our three principles, Scott Lynn, Todd McNeill, and Sunny Sajnani in the August 18th, 2017 edition of the Dallas Business Journal (DBJ). The DBJ features the three principles who represent three generations at Metropolitan Capital Advisors. The article speaks about the founding of the Dallas based commercial real estate finance intermediary by Scott Lynn over 25 years ago, the hiring of the second principle, Todd McNeill in the late 90s, and how Sunny Sajnani, the third principle, took a chance by leaving a well known national finance company to work for the growing Metropolitan Capital Advisors in the mid aughts.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
The three principals of Dallas-based Metropolitan Capital Advisors sit around the conference room of the firm’s new corporate office along Turtle Creek Boulevard, reminiscing about the last time they received a paycheck from a salaried job.
“I haven’t had a paycheck or W-2 form since 2000,” said Todd McNeill, one of the principals at the firm that raises debt and equity capital for real estate deals.
Scott Lynn, the founding principal of the 25-year-old firm, looks off into the horizon overlooking Uptown before saying, “I guess mine was in 1984.”
Earlier this year, the commercial real estate financial intermediary moved its Dallas corporate office for the first time in more than two decades to 3131 Turtle Creek Blvd., positioning Metropolitan Capital closer to the city’s capital sources and in a sought-after submarket of Dallas appealing to clients and would-be recruits.”
The leadership at Metropolitan Capital is focused on rapidly growing the company’s business in the next decade. Last year, the 20-person firm originated more than $400 million of debt and equity capital.
In all, Metropolitan Capital has closed over $13 Billion of debt and equity capital spread throughout more than 1,300 deals over the company’s 25-year history.”
