An accomplished commercial real estate finance executive with more than 17 years of experience, Mr. Holderman has an extensive background in structuring financing strategies and negotiating with lenders and equity providers to achieve capital solutions for institutional investors and developer clients across all healthcare and life science asset types.

“Medical office and life sciences have proven to be resilient, both as an industry and asset class, offering a tremendous opportunity for investors.

Peterson added, “Zack’s capabilities in the medical office and biotech space, along with raising equity capital for his clients, makes him a great addition to our team here in San Diego. We are excited to have someone of his caliber and experience.”
