Non-bank private-client lender PCMA has announced the appointment of Bryan Filkey as executive vice president of credit and strategic initiative.

“Bryan is an industry thought leader, and we are excited to welcome him to PCMA’s team of equally accomplished contemporaries,” said John Lynch, founder and CEO of PCMA. “We continue to add amazing talent to the PCMA roster. Bryan’s talents will help fuel PCMA’s continued growth and further cement our leadership in the private-client space.”

“Finding exceptional leaders is very difficuly, especially someone with the breadth of talent and background that Bryan has,” said Aron Rofer, PCMA’s president and in-house counsel. “I’m confident that Bryan is going to make an important and positive impact on our company.”

“There is a $3 trillion opportunity created by post-crisis legislation – legislation that forced the highest-quality borrowers out of the bankable universe,” Filkey said. “I look forward to creating products, partnerships and capital-raising functions to finance the private-client community that PCMA serves.”

Filkey has extensive experience in capital markets, product development, operations, technology and management. He has overseen more than $2.7 billion in non-agency originations and has experience running wholesale and correspondent divisions for national lenders. As president of B2B at a national mortgage company, he oversaw non-QM production, capital markets, wholesale and correspondent divisions, and was head of IT research and development.

Filkey is regarded as one of the pioneers and thought leaders in the non-QM space. He has previously held positions at PIMCO, Capital One Bank and Credit Suisse.
