The company was also seeking better scale and flexibility to easily handle a broad range of complex commercial loan structures.
"To continue growing Stonehill, we needed a system that would allow us to achieve scale, provide customized financing solutions to borrowers, and attain a competitive advantage in the marketplace," said Greg Friedman, Peachtree Hotel Group's managing principal and CEO.
