Rich Eckert, a former research analyst with Roth Capital, will be joining Lahde Capital Management on Oct. 22 as CFO and risk manager. Andy Springer, who had been juggling triple duties as CFO, chief operations officer and chief compliance officer, will remain in the latter two positions.
“I have known Rich for about five years,” said Andrew Lahde, founder. “Our offices were located directly across from each other for about a year during the early ramp up period for subprime. I can easily say that I gained 50% to 75% of my base understanding of subprime from Rich. He knows this sector inside and out. Simply put, he knows it better than I do.”
Lahde manages the U.S. Residential Real Estate Hedge V and the newly launched Commercial Real Estate Hedge.
