Lima One Capital, an institutionally-backed, specialty finance company that focuses on investment property lending, has hired industry veteran Jeff Tennyson as chief executive officer. Tennyson will relocate to the Greenville headquarters and lead the day-to-day business along with the executive team currently in place.

“We have had tremendous growth and success at Lima One Capital,” says Founder John Warren. “I have decided to focus on more strategic growth opportunities for our company and have brought on an experienced lending executive to take Lima One to new levels of growth and success. Jeff’s experience and leadership in mortgage lending and his success in growing financial services businesses provide Lima One with a perfect background for our next CEO.”

Tennyson brings more than 30-years of industry experience to his new position. Prior to Lima One Capital, Tennyson has served as president of Clayton Holdings, CEO of B2R Finance, and CEO of EquiFirst.

“I am honored to have been selected by John and the board to follow him as CEO of Lima One Capital,” said Tennyson. “John and his team have built a terrific company with innovative lending products and best-in-class service assisting real estate investors across the nation.
