Berkadia has appointed Scott Wadler as managing director of its South Florida capital markets team. He is an expert in debt and equity placement across all product types and will be responsible for institutional-grade residential and commercial property transactions, as well as structured finance advisory. Wadler will be based in the firm’s Miami office, led by Senior Managing Director Mitch Sinberg and Senior Managing Director Charles Foschini

Wadler joins Berkadia from HFF, where he spent more than 10 years, most recently as a senior director of the company’s office in Miami. During his tenure, he gained niche expertise in handling construction financing, hospitality and residential transactions in the southeastern markets. His previous roles include positions at The Related Group Florida and Fortune International Realty. 

Wadler’s appointment is Berkadia’s fifth Florida executive hiring and the fourth former HFF professional to join the company in the past five months. In September, Michael Weinberg and Rebecca Van Reken were hired as managing directors of Berkadia’s Orlando office. Earlier this summer, Jaret Turkell and Roberto Pesant were appointed to co-lead Berkadia’s South Florida investment sales team.
