Azadian Group, a commercial lender headquartered in New York City, has announced the opening of a full-time office in downtown Los Angeles, to service existing clients in the Western U.S. and to capitalize on opportunities in California, Texas, Arizona, Nevada and the surrounding areas.

“We are seeing an ever-increasing amount of business demand west of the Mississippi and we are very excited to establish a foothold in Los Angeles which will serve as a base of operations enabling us to expand in this important and dynamic region,” stated Raffi Azadian, CEO of Azadian Group.

The company has also announced that it has hired Essa Thiry to head up the company’s business development efforts out of Los Angeles. Essa was most recently managing West Coast business development efforts for Hana Financial, a commercial lender based in New York and L.A.

“We are thrilled to have Essa as part of our growing team, especially as we open our first West Coast office and start to focus on building out that territory” said Raffi Azadian.

  • Bridges to third-party financing, M&A or liquidity events
  • Subordinated stretch pieces and over-advances in conjunction with senior institutional lenders
