Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners, (WDIP), Waker & Dunlop's wholly-owned alternative investment manager focused on middle-market commercial real estate investments, has hired Michael Link as Director on WDIP's Capital Formation team.

Link will be based out of the firm's Denver, Colorado headquarters and will be responsible for marketing and fundraising efforts as WDIP continues to build a diversified suite of private equity and debt strategies.

"Mike's skills, established relationships, and experience working with institutional investors – including pensions, endowments, foundations, consultants, fund of funds, and family offices – will be an invaluable addition to the team," says Sam Isaacson, President of WDIP. "We are pleased to have him on board as we continue to pursue our mission of matching the diverse investment needs of our investors with the capital needs of commercial real estate owners."

Prior to joining WDIP, Link served as assistant vice president of investor relations at Massachusetts-based Brookwood Financial Partners, a private equity firm that invests in value-add commercial real estate properties and growth equity in convenience store operating companies. At Brookwood, Link completed a USD300 million private equity capital raise in 2018, and in 2019, he completed a USD700 million real estate recapitalisation and a $830 million private equity capital. His experience also includes stints at Ned Davis Research Group in Boston and at a series of technology startups such as Virtual Computer, RouteMatch Software, and Preparis.

"I was drawn to WDIP's investment approach, recent growth, and reputation as a widely recognised leader in the middle-market real estate finance arena," Link says. "The firm's access to proprietary resources and market intelligence help to provide real-time insights into market movements, valuation, pricing, and underwriting. As WDIP has grown its presence in the space, it is increasingly seeing attractive investment opportunities and driving value for its clients."
