Fifield Companies has hired commercial real estate finance leader Alex Walenta as executive vice president and head of asset management.
“With nearly two decades of experience in the multifamily sector, Alex joins Fifield with deep expertise in everything from asset and portfolio management to acquisitions, dispositions, financing and mixed-use development,” said Fifield Companies President Erin Spears. “The versatility of her background dovetails perfectly with the Fifield formula of engaging top talent who have the know-how and desire to be involved in every aspect of the development process.”
Walenta spent more than six years at Goldman Sachs, where she was most recently vice president of multifamily asset management in the firm’s Dallas office. During her time at Goldman Sachs, she oversaw more than $7 billion of multifamily real estate and led dispositions of over $3.14 billion. Prior to Goldman, Alex began her career with Archon Group and then spent time at Equity Residential and UDR, two leading multifamily real estate investment trusts. Walenta graduated from Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business with a bachelor’s in Finance and received her MBA in Real Estate from the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.
Walenta adds to the ranks of Fifield’s female-led development team, one of the few in the industry, which has been at the helm of some of the company’s most financially successful developments and expansion into new markets.
