ORIX Real Estate Capital (OREC), the combined company of Lancaster Pollard, RED Capital Group, and Hunt Real Estate Capital, announced that it has appointed Aaron Becker as head of production for Seniors Housing and Healthcare. Based in the firm’s Philadelphia office, Becker will lead Seniors Housing and Healthcare origination efforts for the newly merged firm. Together, the company offers a comprehensive suite of specialized capital solutions for multifamily, affordable housing, seniors housing, and healthcare real estate.

Prior to being named head of production, Becker was regional manager in the Northeast for Lancaster Pollard, and served as a banker for nearly a decade. During that time, the Northeast team closed approximately 150 transactions totaling $2.8 billion across the entire capital platform.

“Aaron is the right person to lead our Seniors Housing and Healthcare team into this new era,” said James P. Flynn, CEO of OREC. “His experience in business development and proven leadership make him the ideal choice as we launch a series of initiatives that will enable us to better support the needs of seniors owners and operators in this COVID-19 environment.”

In addition to serving as the national head of production, Becker will lead the East Coast team serving senior living clients. Lancaster Pollard veterans, Casey Moore, Doug Harper, and Quintin Harris, will also expand their leadership roles, with Moore and Harper leading the West, and Harris leading the Midwest.

“The qualities that distinguish our seniors business and made us the top U.S. lender in this sector will serve our clients well during the crisis and its aftermath,” said Becker. “No other company in seniors finance has invested the time, thought, and resources to create a team that is so highly trained and a platform that is so specifically tuned to meet the needs of its clients.”
