Linda Spevacek joined the firm this summer after twenty years of collaboration on various projects and activities. Prior to joining the firm, Linda managed her own commercial real estate consulting practice, Sun Consulting Group, where several assignments led to her expertise in the development and financing of biotech laboratory space. Her vast institutional experience stems from fifteen years at Aetna, where she underwrote transactions and managed commercial mortgage portfolios, and from several years in the banking field dealing with construction and REIT financing. B&C is thrilled to finally have her on board.
