Citybiz Interview with Randy Rienas, President at Compass Commercial Mortgage


Randy Rienas

In preparing to represent borrowers in the commercial finance process Randy spent 18 years employed by Sun Bank, First Union and Northern Trust developing the skill set to add value for the borrower. He was extensively trained in credit analysis at Sun Bank before becoming a commercial real estate loan officer at First Union and a senior lending officer at Northern Trust.

As financing packages are prepared for presentation to prospective lenders Randy recognizes potential issues, mitigates and structures around them before they become issues with prospective lenders. His understanding of the commercial finance markets, inclusive of banks, capital market, life insurance companies and specialty lenders and their appetites for various transactions results in loan presentations being made to lenders interested in growing their commercial real estate loan portfolios.

As a former peer and associate of many prominent commercial real estate lending officers Randy has long standing relationships with the most productive lenders in the industry. Compass deals exclusively at the senior level within lending institutions.
