DENVER--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Allonhill, an independent third-party review firm specializing in
mortgage due diligence and credit risk management, today announced the hiring of Ross Gammill to serve as director
of the firm’s new commercial due diligence offering.
“Our unmatched expertise in mortgage due diligence and credit risk management, coupled with some of the best
commercial real estate talent around, will provide valuable support for investors and issuers of commercial mortgage-
backed securities (CMBS) as this market re-emerges this year,” said Sue Allon, CEO and founder of Allonhill.
“Thorough due diligence performed by independent third-party review firms will help restore investor confidence in
this severely deteriorated sector.”
The CMBS market showed recent signs of renewed life in April, with the first new-issue CMBS in nearly two years.
Deal flow in the near term is expected to lag considerably from the market high of $232.4 billion in 2007.
Gammill brings over seven years experience in the financial services industry. Most recently he served as underwriter
for Bridger Commercial Funding, where he underwrote more than $400 million in commercial bonds. He holds a
master of science in real estate development from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and recently co-authored a
white paper analyzing the financial aspects of alternative energy upgrades in commercial office buildings.
