Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc. Announces Promotions Within And Changes To Its Management In Finance, Capital Markets And Investor Relations

NEW YORK, Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackstone Mortgage Trust, Inc. (NYSE: BXMT) announced today a number of promotions within and changes to its management in finance, capital markets and investor relations, as the Company continues its integration with Blackstone as its external manager.  After 15 years of service to the predecessor company, Capital Trust, Geoffrey G. Jervis, chief financial officer of BXMT, has informed the Company of his desire to pursue other opportunities.  Mr. Jervis will resign in the fourth quarter of 2013, at which time a successor chief financial officer is expected to be named.  Mr. Jervis played key roles at Capital Trust and was instrumental in the sale to Blackstone of the Capital Trust management subsidiary (CTIMCO) and the integration of that business into Blackstone.

The Company also announced a series of appointments that will enhance and integrate its capital markets, investor relations, and accounting functions with the broader Blackstone platform, specifically:
  • Douglas Armer, currently Head of Capital Markets for BXMT, has been promoted to Treasurer & Head of Capital Markets. Douglas brings 15 years of industry experience and has acted as the head of capital markets for CT and BXMT for 7 years.
  • Weston Tucker, Senior Vice President and Head of Investor Relations for Blackstone, has been named to the additional position of Head of Investor Relations for BXMT.
  • Anthony Marone, the Company's Controller for 5 years, has been elevated to the role of the Company's Principal Accounting Officer.

"We thank Geoff for his many years of service and leadership and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.  Geoff developed a very deep and talented capital markets, finance and accounting team led by Douglas Armer and Anthony Marone, that will serve us well as we move forward. The addition of Weston Tucker to head BXMT's Investor Relations will further strengthen our management team and foster integration with Blackstone," said Stephen D. Plavin, chief executive officer of the Company.
