Diana Hallal & Christina Johnson Join TMC Financing Southern California Team
TMC Financing today announced Diana Hallal and Christina Johnson have joined TMC’s Southern California commercial real estate lending team of Jennifer Davis and Jennine Gilmer. In the past three years, TMC has participated in projects worth more than $612 million to Southern California businesses, primarily through the U.S. Small Business Administration 504 lending program.
As senior vice president, business development, Hallal is responsible for the acquisition of commercial real estate loans. As a business development associate/junior loan officer, Johnson provides commercial loan production support.
“I’m excited about TMC’s growth in Southern California,” Hallal said. “This team has such dedication to partnering with commercial real estate brokers and commercial lenders to help business owners grow through the strategic purchase of fixed assets. We’re glad to be on board.”
“Diana and I began our careers together at Bank of America 18 years ago. We partnered on many loans when she was a lender and I’m thrilled to have her join us,” Jennifer Davis, senior vice president at TMC, said. “We’ll be working together as a team, so our broker and lender partners can reach out to either of us and we’ll get the loan done.”
Prior to joining TMC, Hallal was director of business banking at Union Bank, where she was the No. 1 real estate loan producer in business banking for four consecutive years. Prior to that, she was a commercial loan officer at Wells Fargo and a business development officer at Bank of America. Johnson worked side-by-side with Hallal at Union Bank as a business banking associate and credit analyst.
“Diana and Jennifer have more than 40 years of combined commercial real estate lending experience and will be great assets to our local team,” said TMC Executive Vice President Rich Grant. “We’re growing fast in Southern California and they will help us continue to be responsive and make local decisions efficiently.”
The team has local offices in both Los Angeles and Orange County.
