Mark McCool

President – Berkadia Commercial Real Estate Services


Berkadia’s history began in 1994, when GMAC Commercial Mortgage Corporation (GMACCM) was established as a separate operating unit of the GMAC Mortgage Group. GMACCM grew to become one of the largest commercial real estate finance companies in the industry, with operations in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia.

In March 2006, an investor group led by affiliates of Kohlberg, Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR), Five Mile Capital Partners, LLC and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners completed the acquisition of a majority interest in GMAC Commercial Holding Corp. The company then changed its name to Capmark Financial Group Inc. (Capmark) and established a new executive team.

In 2009, Berkadia was formed when a joint venture of Berkshire Hathaway and Leucadia National Corporation (now Jefferies Financial Group) – both of which are renowned for their capital strength and sophisticated investment strategies – acquired Capmark’s mortgage origination and servicing business.

What it Means to be Berkadia

I believe I am most passionate about the future-facing aspect of the role, [analysts] are the first to really ‘build the story’ of how the property will develop in tandem with economic trends.
