M&T Realty Capital Corp. appoints managing director

New York, NY — Coming off a very strong year of expanding the company’s affordable housing finance platform, M&T Realty Capital Corporation (MTRCC) has announced the appointment of Sean Cullen as a managing director. He will be responsible for originating affordable housing and multifamily loans across the United States and will be based in New York City.

Cullen has more than 30 years of experience in multifamily and affordable housing finance. He comes to MTRCC from Lument, formerly Red Capital Group, where he was employed for the past two years as a managing director of affordable housing originations and charged with establishing a New York City presence for the brand. Prior to this, Cullen held analytical, bond underwriting and production roles at several financial institutions, including Moody’s, RBC Capital Markets, and Barings Multifamily Capital amongst others.

“Our customers will continue to benefit as we further grow our team and increase collaboration between all parts of the bank,” said Jeff Rodman, MTRCC’s Program Manager of the affordable housing platform. “Sean will be a true asset to the communities that we serve, bringing innovative structuring ideas from his breadth and depth of experience in the affordable housing sector.”

Cullen holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration from Villanova University and a Master of Business Administration from Manhattan College. He also received a diploma from New York University’s School of Continuing Studies in Credit Analysis.

Cullen’s appointment comes off a record-setting year for M&T Realty Capital Corporation, particularly in the affordable housing sector. The company opened new affordable housing origination offices, hired three other director-level roles, and received the coveted Freddie Mac Optigo TAH License. The growth of MTRCC’s affordable housing platform builds new synergies between MTRCC and M&T Bank’s construction, bridge, and LIHTC offerings. In fact, the company was recently nationally recognized for outstanding financial thought leadership affordable housing content by the Gramercy Institute.
