Park Madison names new partner – Exclusive

The New York-based real assets placement and advisory firm has promoted Carrie Coulson following the recent departure of Gentry Hoit.

Park Madison Partners, a New York-based real assets placement and advisory firm, has elevated Carrie Coulson to partner. The promotion follows former partner Gentry Hoit’s departure to join GreenOak Real Estate as partner and head of business development, as PERE reported earlier this month. Coulson is the sole other partner at Park Madison in addition to the firm’s managing partner and founder, Nancy Lashine.

However, Coulson is not replacing Hoit, who previously was partner and head of the capital advisory practice at Park Madison, as the latter’s responsibilities will be divided among existing team members, including principal Jin Lee, who joined the firm last month. Coulson will continue to work on the distribution of investment products to institutional investors while also assuming additional responsibilities in the firm’s management and strategic planning.

Coulson joined Park Madison in September 2013 as a principal. She previously worked for three years as a director at MVision Private Equity Advisers, an international advisory firm focused on capital raising for private equity, real estate, real assets, credit and direct transactions in both developed and emerging markets. Coulson was one of three real estate-focused professionals at MVision, along with Mitchell Sikora and Scott Arden, both of whom Coulson had worked at placement firm JT Partners. Coulson joined MVision in early 2010 and left in June 2013. She began her career in real estate public finance as an analyst at IRR Corporate & Public Finance.

“Carrie has been a key player in Park Madison’s continued success as a leading real assets placement firm,” said Lashine. “She has a deep rapport within the institutional investor community and has broad experience with alternative investment products. Her integrity, creativity, and ability to achieve results make her an invaluable member of the Park Madison team.”
