LOS ANGELES (April 11, 2016) — AECOM Capital, the investment and development arm of AECOM, a premier fully integrated global infrastructure firm, recently announced the appointment of Ted Fentin to serve as a managing director.
Mr. Fentin will be responsible for the origination and execution of real estate projects for AECOM Capital’s West Coast platform. Since AECOM Capital’s founding in January 2013, it has invested in 14 projects across residential, commercial and mixed-uses in top-tier U.S. markets, with a development value of US$3.5 billion and over 7.5 million square feet.
“Ted’s diverse industry experience in financing, developing, executing and managing large-scale real estate projects is the perfect fit for AECOM Capital’s integrated platform,” said AECOM Capital Chief Executive John T. Livingston. “His deep connections on the West Coast have the ability to pay significant dividends; we are excited to welcome him to the team and look forward to him playing an integral role as our division continues its rapid growth.”
Mr. Fentin has more than 17 years of experience in the real estate industry, including a role as senior vice president with CBRE in the debt and structured finance group. In that position, he co-led a 10-person team and advised on more than US$1 billion of debt and equity transactions, specializing in the capitalization of ground-up development throughout the Western United States.
“Investing in projects early to help ensure that they are optimally planned, structured and capitalized and then managing relationships with the construction and design team is an exciting method of delivery that can continue to create tremendous opportunities for AECOM Capital,” said Fentin. “On projects like South Park in Downtown Los Angeles, this business model has well positioned AECOM Capital for success, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Prior to his time at CBRE, Mr. Fentin spent seven years with DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners, a division of Credit Suisse, where he was responsible for West Coast acquisitions. During that time he helped lead underwriting, due diligence and acquisitions, along with on-going asset management, for approximately US$350 million of equity investments, with more than US$1 billion of total asset value. His work included residential, retail and office development projects — all areas that are core to AECOM Capital’s business.
Mr. Fentin also spent time with renowned law firm Latham & Watkins in its Los Angeles office, where he practiced law in the finance and real estate department. He received his Master of Business Administration from Columbia Business School, a Juris Doctor from University of Michigan Law School and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Urban Land Institute and the California Bar Association. He is on the Board of Directors of the Envision Foundation and the Board of Governors for Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
