ATLANTA (January 9, 2024) – Hunter Hotel Advisors (“HUNTER”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its national reach through the establishment of a Capital Markets team, with Charlie Ryan as the company’s first addition. In his role as Senior Vice President of Capital Markets at HUNTER, Ryan will assume responsibility for overseeing the firm’s debt and capital market activities on a national scale. This strategic initiative aims to further enhance HUNTER’s standing as the leading investment advisory firm exclusively focused on the hotel industry. Ryan joins HUNTER following his tenure as the Head of Debt & Capital Markets platform at Sonder.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Charlie as our new Senior Vice President of Capital Markets. His expertise aligns seamlessly with our vision, and we’re excited about the growth and success he’ll bring to HUNTER,” said Teague Hunter, President & CEO of HUNTER.

With 15 years of industry experience, Ryan played a pivotal role in Sonder’s growth, where he launched and led the Capital Markets division. His responsibilities included spearheading asset-level financing activities across the United States and North America, resulting in the placement of over $500 million in senior loans and mezzanine financing on behalf of Sonder’s real estate partners.

Prior to his time at Sonder, Ryan was instrumental in the formation of CBRE Hotel’s West Coast Debt & Structured Finance team. As the second hire to the group, he advised clients on effective debt management strategies, leading to more than $150 million in senior and mezzanine loan placements. Before CBRE, he contributed to Lowe Enterprises Investors (LEI) debt investments platform, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment management firm.

“I am very excited to join the HUNTER team, and I applaud the strategic decision to integrate a debt and capital markets platform into HUNTER’s suite of products,” said Charlie Ryan, Senior Vice President of Capital Markets at HUNTER. “This initiative underscores the firm’s commitment to delivering their clients the best service possible while providing the most comprehensive solutions available. I look forward to spearheading this new team and contributing to the ongoing expansion of the HUNTER brand.”
