The Granite Companies (Granite), announced the launch of a new division, Granite Excell Management (GEM), to meet the changing consulting and contracts needs of the commercial construction lending industry.
As the newest member of the Granite family of companies, GEM was formed to manage, administer and develop new core business opportunities in public and private commercial construction lending markets. With projected growth expected to increase in 2010 and beyond, GEM will be positioned to provide consulting and other professional services to lenders under the Granite umbrella. Granite’s analysis of market trends, platforms and adapted business models will enable GEM to meet market demands in the dynamic and ever changing construction lending landscape.
Granite is strategizing for the changes lying ahead and welcomes the opportunity of developing new priorities, standards and technology for its innovative risk mitigation products and services.
