Sabal Financial Group Names Jason Hull Director of Business Development

September 25, 2012 - Newport Beach, CA

Sabal Financial Group, L.P., a diversified financial services management firm, has appointed Jason Hull as Director of Business Development. In this role, Hull will be responsible for growing all areas of Sabal's business, including commercial real estate investments and all types of third party services.

Hull brings an extensive background in the management and disposition of more than $5 billon in distressed real estate. Prior to his position with Sabal Financial Group, he directed the commercial real estate and business development efforts at San Diego-based distressed real estate firm Trigild Inc., where he spearheaded the growth of the commercial division, including opening offices in Phoenix, San Francisco, Houston, Ft. Lauderdale, and Washington, DC. Hull also launched Trigild's commercial property management division, which today manages over 15 million square-feet of commercial property and 5,000 apartment and self-storage units for banks, special services, institutional investors as well as private individuals.

Sabal Financial Group specializes in the acquisition, valuation, management and servicing of commercial real estate (CRE) and acquisition, development and construction (ADC) loans. The announcement of Jason Hull's position at Sabal Financial comes as the three-year-old company is set to reach $4 billion in assets under management. Sabal Chief Executive Officer Pat Jackson sees continued expansion of services based on Sabal's expertise in banking and capital markets and sustained demand for the sale of non-performing loans.

"Sabal has tripled in size in the last 18 months and we brought Jason on board to maintain that pace," said Jackson. "His industry relationships, experience and track record in business development are strategic to Sabal's growth."

Hull also served as senior acquisition director for a San Diego private equity firm, where he was responsible for the sourcing and structuring of real estate investments and debt acquisitions, including financial analysis, due diligence, market analysis and asset management.

Hull has been recognized by Real Estate Forum and San Diego Business Journal as a nationwide and local industry leader in their "40 Under 40" awards. Prior to entering the real estate industry, Hull was a Navy SEAL and Lieutenant in the United States Navy and was decorated for valor in both Afghanistan and Iraq.

Hull completed his undergraduate studies at the United States Naval Academy and received his Master's Degree in Business Administration from Duke University.
