CMBS vet Paul Vanderslice exits CCRE

first_imgPaul Vanderslice (Linkedin)The head of one of the commercial mortgage industry’s big bookrunners has left the firm he was brought on to reboot just two years ago.Paul Vanderslice, who helped pioneer the market for commercial mortgage backed securities, retired last week as the head of Cantor Commercial Real Estate, the lending arm of Wall Street titan Howard Lutnick’s Cantor Fitzgerald, sources told The Real Deal.Vanderslice could not be immediately reached and a spokesperson for CCRE did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Vanderslice, who had spent 30 years at Citigroup and most recently ran its U.S. CMBS group, in 2018 joined CCRE, which Lutnick launched in 2010 to compete with powerhouses like Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan and Wells Fargo. He took over for CCRE CEO Anthony Orso, who left to run Newmark Knight Frank’s capital markets strategies.ADVERTISEMENTVanderslice was there to “reboot” CCRE, he told Commercial Observer last year. But one source familiar with the situation said there were internal conflicts with the staff after Orso left.Earlier this year, Cantor was reportedly looking to lay off hundreds of workers, one of the largest staff reductions on Wall Street.CCRE last year underwrote $2.9 billion worth of CMBS deals, according to Commercial Mortgage Alert. That placed the firm at number 10 on the publication’s ranking of the top U.S. CMBS bookrunners in terms of volume.Contact Rich Bockmann at [email protected] or 908-415-5229 This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Alaska Board Mulls Pot Use In Retail Stores

first_imgThe state’s marijuana regulators will meet Thursday to consider letting pot retail stores allow onsite consumption. Denver is considering licenses for marijuana social clubs and allowing places like coffee shops and art galleries to allow consumption, and there are some other social clubs outside Denver. Chris Lindsey, a senior legislative counsel with the Marijuana Policy Project, says the Alaska provision is the first time this has been addressed at the state level. Recreational marijuana is legal in eight states and the District of Columbia. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Thousands of cruise ship passengers could soon be getting a different taste of Alaska this summer. Critics fear either an Amsterdam-like scene or marijuana use spilling into alleys, parks and trails since visitors can’t take the drug back onto the cruise ships. They hope the state pot board puts in place restrictions to keep it from happening.last_img read more

England name U19 squad for Caribbean tri-series

first_imgLONDON,  CMC – A strong 16-member England Under-19 squad has been named for a 50 overs-a-side, tri-nations series involving West Indies U19s and Sri Lanka U19s in December in the Caribbean. The England & Wales Cricket Board said yesterday the series is the last competitive test for the young players before the ICC U19 World Cup, which takes place in South Africa in January and February 2020.“With the World Cup on the horizon, this is our last opportunity to assess our squad and decide which 15 players to take with us to South Africa,” said England U19 head coach, Jon Lewis.“We’ve also taken this opportunity to look at some players who are relatively untested at this level and have the chance to force their way into our World Cup squad.” Nearly half the squad managed to secure county first team appearances during this past summer. Ben Charlesworth (Gloucestershire), Jack Haynes (Worcestershire), Jordan Cox (Kent), Dan Mousley (Warwickshire), Hamidullah Qadri (Derbyshire), Joey Evison (Nottinghamshire) and Tom Clark (Sussex) all had development experiences at the next level.Many of the 16 players selected also featured in this summer’s tri-series against India and Bangladesh, including captain George Balderson and vice-captain George Hill.Scott Currie and Sam Young come into the squad having showed their potential this summer in second team cricket for Hampshire and Somerset respectively, and together for Dorset in the National Counties competition.  Wicketkeeper Harry Duke, from Yorkshire, is also new to the squad and was selected off the back of impressive performances with the gloves at the ECB Young Lions Super 4 Competition, as well as for the Yorkshire Academy and Second XI. Lewis said the experience of playing against West Indies and Sri Lanka U19s in the Caribbean are a major step forward on the players journey and will help them understand the levels they need to achieve to be successful professional cricketers.“West Indies and Sri Lanka are both countries with fantastic cricketing pedigrees and cultures, so we’re sure to experience strong and diverse challenges ahead of our main objective after Christmas,” he said.Warwickshire batsman Ian Bell will join the coaching team this winter as batting coach, with former Hampshire wicketkeeper Nic Pothas coming in as fielding coach. “I’m delighted to welcome Ian and Nic to the team for our two tours this winter,” he said. “After a thorough and open recruitment process, we decided that both coaches were exactly the right fit for the team and the programme at this point in time.“The experience they have can only add value to the programme over the short period of time we have with the players.”He added: “Ian is one of his generation’s highest run scorers, whose knowledge and experience of playing under pressure at the highest levels, including multiple World Cups, is a brilliant resource for the players to tap into and something that is not always available to them at county level. “Nic has great experience in international coaching with West Indies and Sri Lanka and is a native of Highveld in South Africa, making him an ideal candidate to fill gaps in our knowledge of our opponents and the conditions we are going to play in.“Alongside that he is a brilliant fielding and wicketkeeping coach, and I expect him to make an impact on our skill execution in the field, an area I am very keen to improve with this group of players. As we saw during the final moments of the Summer’s World Cup, it’s an area that can make the difference between winning and losing trophies.”Squad:George Balderson (captain), Kasey Aldridge, Ben Charlesworth, Tom Clark, Jordan Cox, Blake Cullen, Scott Currie, Harry Duke, Joey Evison, Lewis Goldsworthy, Jack Haynes, George Hill, Luke Hollman, Dan Mousley, Hamidullah Qadri, Sam Young  ItineraryDecember Sun 1: Warm up game v Antigua XI – Coolidge Cricket Ground, AntiguaTue 3: Warm up game v Antigua XI – Coolidge Cricket Ground, AntiguaFri 6: ODI v Sri Lanka U19 – Coolidge Cricket Ground, Antigua Mon 9: ODI v West Indies U19 – Coolidge Cricket Ground, AntiguaThu 12: ODI v Sri Lanka U19 – Coolidge Cricket Ground, AntiguaFri 13: ODI v West Indies U19 – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua Tue 17: ODI v Sri Lanka U19 – Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, AntiguaThu 19: ODI v West Indies U19 – Coolidge Cricket Ground, AntiguaSat 21: Final – Venue TBClast_img read more
