Blackstone CMBS Unit Gets New CFO

Dec 11 2013 | 11:18am ET

The Blackstone Group has named Paul Quinlan CFO of its commercial real-estate debt effort and its Blackstone Mortgage Trust.

The appointment is the latest for Quinlan at the alternative investments giant: He most recently was head of financial planning and business development and was formerly CFO of Blackstone Advisory Partners. He joined Blackstone from Merrill Lynch.

"We are excited to announce Paul Quinlan as our new CFO," Blackstone Mortgage Trust CEO Stephen Plavin said. "Paul was a key member of the Blackstone deal team for the strategic transition with Capital Trust prior to its 're-IPO' as BXMT. We think Paul's background with the company and success in key roles at Blackstone make him uniquely qualified to serve as our CFO."
