NEW YORK CITY—HKS Capital Partners has appointed Charles Yellen managing director. He is a 25-year veteran of the finance industry.
Before joining the capital advisory firm, he worked at Pergolis Swartz Associates for ten years. At that company, Yellen obtained commercial mortgages for all asset classes—including multifamily, retail, industrial, office, hotel and construction—in transactions with a net worth of over $500 million dollars. It was unclear at press time where Yellen worked earlier in his career.
At HKS, his responsibilities will be to manage the firm’s growing practice and work in collaboration with the founding partners and staff to mentor HKS brokers and trainees. Yellen brings a wealth of experience to HKS’ key components: originations, processing and operations.
“Charles brings years of experience with all facets of the business,” says HKS Capital founding co-partner Ayush Kapahi. “His ability to originate, place and manage makes him a very valuable addition to our team. We are excited to have him on board and look forward to the future.”

He is an accomplished advisor and consultant who works with and represents local developers, as well as S&P 500 companies.”
