Evan Gibson

EVP, Capital Markets

As Executive Vice President of Capital Markets, Gibson manages the Capital Markets group and develops bridge and permanent debt solutions that extend beyond traditional balance sheet and agency products. His unique perspective and approach, coupled with a knack for people management and leadership, has carried the group and company at large to record-setting years in 2021, Gibson’s first full year on the team, and in 2022.

Gibson originated the Capital Markets platform in early 2020, growing it from a one-person operation to a team executing more than $3 billion in securitizations and more than $900 million in assets under management. In June 2021, the group completed a $262 million Freddie Mac Q-Series Transaction that securitized 15 workforce multifamily housing loans from across the country. It was the first Q-Series deal under Gibson’s leadership and the 15th deal completed under Freddie Mac’s Q platform. Merchants Capital closed a second $214 million Q-Series securitization less than 12 months later. The Q-deal program creates liquidity for Merchants and further enables continued financing for multifamily, affordable and workforce housing properties nationwide.

Prior to joining Merchants in February 2020, Mr. Gibson served as the head of direct lending for a top U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) lender and was a commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) bond trader and market maker at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Mr. Gibson is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, having served as an Infantryman. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Washington.
