In our weekly Note, we occasionally pick a topic that shifts on us mid-week, and it is not always in our favor. However, this week delivered a pre-release surprise in the tentative resolution of the SAG-AFTRA strike (aka the “Actors’ Strike”), which reinforces one of the topics we focused on: the health of the labor market as a pillar of US economic resilience.

Steve has worked at Bridge for over 8 years managing and executing the legal/closing activities of Bridge Debt Strategies. He is thoroughly and extensively involved on both the loan closing side of the direct lending business as well as the CRE CLO securitization aspect of our strategy. He bridges the gap in communications between the business side and legal side with outside counsel, negotiating detailed and complicated terms to get our investments all the way to close. In the last few years, he's helped navigate the convoluted and complicated real estate workouts on distressed assets/REO/foreclosures that have occurred due to the volatility of the markets. He is thoughtful and thorough in highlighting business risks to appropriate parties and focused on protecting investment structures and is adept at assessing risk regardless of where we are in the market cycle. Beyond BDS, Steve is also a BWN mentor for a female sr. associate and is an active member of CREFC.
Nicole has assumed a role that I don’t think many could fill based on its extremely demanding nature, let alone at the level of excellence in which she operates. Nicole works tirelessly and is unbelievably patient with a complicated product and client set. She regularly goes above and beyond her role in CSG to provide assistance to the product team she covers, all with a smile and cheerful attitude. Nicole’s ability to excel, is really exemplary as she's expanded from historical functions of her role to embed herself and integrate herself to the benefit of Bridge. It has been truly impressive to see her grow and develop in her time here at Bridge, where she’s become an expert in the field she covers within CSG while also being an incredibly kind person with a warm personality that lifts those around her. The CSG team is truly so glad we’re able to work with her. She’s a very worthy recipient of public acknowledgement for the great job she does on a daily basis.
