Maute has played a critical role at M360 since inception more than five years ago, both as an early investor and advisor. He currently serves on the Investment Committee for M360 CRE Income Fund LP and is actively involved in investment decisions and loan surveillance. Maute provided seed capital for the fund as one of its initial investors. He is also on the Board of Directors at M360’s direct lending affiliate, Money360, Inc. ("Money360"), where he has been instrumental in helping the company institutionalize its back-end operations. He will continue in these roles, in addition to his role as CEO of M360 Advisors.

"I look forward to taking on this important role with the M360 Advisors team, particularly at a time of such great opportunity for private real estate debt. Throughout the firm’s five-year track record, we have proven the viability of our strategy to deliver above-market fixed income returns while mitigating risks, even through a world-wide pandemic," said Maute. "We see a substantial pipeline of attractive opportunities ahead and expect the strategy to continue to benefit in 2021 from a greater need for bridge capital, as pandemic-related protections expire and distressed scenarios come further into play."

Maute is a tenured commercial real estate executive with over 30 years of industry experience. His previous roles include Executive Vice President & Global Head of Distressed Investment at GMAC, where he grew six distressed commercial real estate investment companies in five different countries; Co-Founder of Helios AMC, a nationally-rated special servicing company for commercial real estate loans, which he grew to more than $4 billion in assets under management prior to its merger with Situs; and senior managing director at Situs, a world-leading company providing commercial real estate services and solutions. During his tenure at GMAC, Maute worked with newly appointed Money360 CEO, Tom MacManus, for nearly a decade.

The broader senior leadership team at M360 will remain in place. Matthew Koelliker, who joined M360 Advisors in February 2020 after nearly 10 years at PIMCO, was promoted to President of M360 Advisors last year. Matthew, along with Laura Catalino, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, will continue to oversee client relationships and capital raising efforts. Dan Vetter, Co-Founder of M360 Advisors, continues to serve as Chief Investment Officer.

Gentry said, "I have great confidence in our entire team and look forward to returning to work with them after my church mission. John’s experience as both an advisor and investor make him a natural fit to lead M360 into its next phase of growth. He and Tom MacManus have great trust and mutual respect for one another, which will help them identify additional synergies between the affiliated companies."

M360 Advisors has over $900 million of assets under management, as of December 31, 2020.
