ST. LOUIS, April 27, 2023 — ElmTree Funds (“ElmTree”), a leading net-lease real estate private equity firm, has welcomed seasoned executive Matt Innes to the role of Managing Director, Head of Investor Relations. The addition of Innes, who is responsible for the firm’s capital raising activities, represents ElmTree’s commitment to its investor base. ElmTree CEO & Founder James Koman made the announcement.

“Matt is a skilled leader with a breadth and depth of experience, and his joining our team poses an opportunity to continue to elevate our differentiated, disciplined investment process,” said Koman. “With an impressive track record in investor relations and more than a decade and a half in commercial real estate and private equity, we are confident that Matt’s skill set is ideally aligned with ElmTree Funds’ plans for continued growth and expansion.”

Prior to joining ElmTree, Innes was a Director at Lazard’s Private Capital Advisory Group with a focus on private equity real estate and real assets capital formation, fundraising and investor coverage across the United States and Canada. Previously, Innes was a Managing Director at Jadian Capital, where he was responsible for capital raising and business development.

Additionally, Innes has held management positions at Building and Land Technology (“BLT”) and Camden Securities, and began his career at CB Richard Ellis, where he focused on institutional property sales.

“Given the risk/reward calculus in today’s marketplace, ElmTree’s focus on industrial mission-critical build-to-suit assets is not just appealing, it’s ideally suited to ensure that investors are very well-compensated for the level of risk they assume,” Innes said. “The opportunity to continue to expand and deliver for that strong investor base is both exciting and inspiring.”
