Mark Burton has joined Strategic Partners Fund Solutions to lead its real estate secondaries practice.
Burton will serve as a principal and oversee Strategic Partners’ real estate secondary investment activities.
Burton joins Strategic Partners from H/2 Capital Partners, a commercial real estate credit manager, where he was a managing director focused on distressed commercial mortgage opportunities. Prior to joining H/2, Burton worked at Goldman Sachs for 11 years in the special situations group overseeing domestic commercial real estate investing and lending.
Stephen Can, co-head of strategic partners, says: “We could not be more pleased to have Mark joining to lead our real estate secondary efforts as we invest the 2011 vintage Strategic Partners Fund V RE, our fourth dedicated real estate secondary fund. Mark’s depth of experience as a principal real estate investor will undoubtedly benefit our real estate secondaries practice and provide extensive insight to the Strategic Partners platform. Mark’s talents and formidable investing skills will be critical to our continued real estate success.”
