Beth O’Brien, President and CEO, CoreVest American Finance
Beth O’Brien is the founder and CEO of CoreVest American Finance, a private lender to residential real estate investors. CoreVest, originally known as Colony American Finance, was founded in 2014 to address the unique needs of investors in the single-family rental and bridge loan space who were not served well by either commercial or residential products. Under O’Brien’s leadership, CoreVest has closed more than $2.5 billion in loans and won the NREI/IMN Award in 2016 for innovation by a non-bank lender.
Previously, O’Brien was executive vice president at Auction.com, where she ran residential capital markets, and was president of AuctionFinance.com, where she oversaw the financing strategy for the platform. In that capacity, she managed single-family and multi-family loan sales, and founded a proprietary private lender geared at the investor market.
O’Brien also previously worked at Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. Combined, she has more than 25 years of experience in almost every aspect of the mortgage industry as both a principal and an advisor, and she has overseen more than $15 billion in transactions.
