MIAMI, FL – August 9, 2023 – Berkadia announced today the addition of Senior Managing Directors Christian Charre and Paul Weimer and Managing Director Natalie Castillo to the Hotels & Hospitality platform. Charre, Weimer, and Castillo, who are joining Berkadia from CBRE Hotels, will be based in Miami. They will report to Senior Managing Director – Head of Hotels & Hospitality Andy Wimsatt.
