Waterton has selected Tara Marszewski as its new CFO. In this position, she will have direct oversight of finance, corporate, residential and hospitality accounting, tax, treasury and benefits and compensation functions. Additionally, she will participate in the firm’s management, investment and valuation Committees. Marszewski will take over from Doug Denyer, who is retiring but will remain an additional six to eight weeks with Waterton to ensure a smooth transition.

Marszewski is an accomplished finance, strategy and operations executive and brings more than 20 years of experience to the role. Most recently, she served as CFO of Brookfield Properties’ retail group and oversaw all aspects of the accounting and finance functions including property and operational accounting, SEC reporting and compliance, corporate finance, financial planning and analysis and taxation. Prior to that, she was CAO of General Growth Properties, Inc.—which later merged with Brookfield—and spent 10 years in the real estate audit practice at KPMG, where she focused on public and private REITs, as well as equity funds.

Recently, Waterton re-entered the Las Vegas market with a $140 million portfolio acquisition. The company bought the 400-unit Mirasol Apartment Homes and the 320-unit Fairways on Green Valley from a joint venture between Bascom Group and Oaktree Capital Management.
