Annemarie DiCola, CEO of analytics firm Trepp, LLC, was officially installed as the Commercial Real Estate Finance Council (CREFC) Chair during the association’s 2018 Annual Conference, which kicked off yesterday at the New York Marriott Marquis.

DiCola, who now leads CREFC’s 11-person Executive Committee, said during her speech that she is “looking forward to her tenure as the organization deepens its recognition as a best-in-class advocacy organization. I believe that as the commercial real estate finance industry wrestles with changing regulations across different market segments, we need to maintain our collective attention to different viewpoints and potential impact,” DiCola said.
