Anchor Loans, Inc., a leading California hard money lender, announces the appointment of Brian Alonge as Chief Financial Officer.

“We performed an exhaustive search for the right person to fill this important role, and we are confidant Brian brings incredible financial prowess and real world experience to our team,” says Anchor President, Steve Pollack.
Prior to joining Anchor Loans, Brian was a principal and CFO at Lighthouse Lodging Group, where, during the economic downturn in 2009, he raised $36 million of private equity to acquire and subsequently renovate the Marriott Napa Valley hotel, which was quickly repositioned and sold for $72 million.
Before Lighthouse Lodging Group, Brian served as CFO at Windsor Capital Group, where, during his 14-year tenure, he oversaw a 20-member accounting team and managed the financial and tax matters for the company’s 38 hotels and numerous other properties, corporations and partnerships which generated annual revenues in excess of $350 million. At Windsor, Brian participated in portfolio refinancing and restructuring projects totaling over $1 billion in gross proceeds, and saved the company tens of millions of dollars in annual interest expenses.
Of his new position with Anchor, Brian Alonge says, "I chose Anchor Loans because I was interested in working with quality people who showed the willingness to grow the company and take it to the next level."
