Jim O’Leary has left Capita Asset Services bringing to an end an almost 14-year career at Europe’s largest independent loan servicing firm to pursue other opportunities.
O’Leary, a well-regarded industry figure, has played a key leadership role in the some of the largest and most complex CMBS restructuring processes in Europe as well as part of the business development team which won loan servicing contracts for Capita, including the €130bn master servicing mandate from NAMA.
For Capita, O’Leary led the restructuring negotiations on the GRAND transaction, Europe’s largest-ever CMBS transaction, and, as well as some of the larger German multi-family restructurings including Gagfah, and the Fleet Street Finance Two transaction, secured by a portfolio of stores let to German retailer Karstadt.
More recently, O’Leary played a leading role on Theatre (Hospitals) No. 1 and No.2 CMBS.
O’Leary joined Capmark in July 2001, which was acquired by Capita seven years later. He was a director at Capita and headed up their primary servicing division, and also on the Board of Governors of the CRE Finance Council Europe.
Prior to joining Capita he held a number of senior positions within the commercial lending and banking sectors.
