Meet the Team: Melissa Snowden

Through our affiliation with ArrowMark Partners, Stronghill Capital is a well-capitalized direct lender, capable of assisting borrowers with large lending needs and offering competitive rates across asset classes. Many of our loans offer a high degree of flexibility depending on a borrower’s experience level, their unique financing needs, and their investment goals over time.

At Stronghill, we believe establishing trust is the first step to a successful and thriving business partnership. Over the next few months, we’ll be spotlighting key members of the Stronghill team through our #StrongTeam series.

Today we spoke with Missi Snowden, a dedicated member to the Stronghill team, who brings over 25 years of expertise in real estate serving as a commercial lender, real estate broker, firm owner and property manager.

What is your day-to-day at Stronghill Capital?

I serve a key function in the lending department. As Stronghill’s Managing Director, I work to analyze commercial funding opportunities and make discerning origination recommendations to deploy capital for a direct, private, small-balance CRE lender nationwide. My daily goal is to build and procure solid relationships with channel partners for continual and increased production.

How do you spend your time outside of work?

I am highly passionate about Asian cultures and languages after living in Tokyo and studying Japanese at Columbia University, but don’t put my skills to the test… I would win the record for world’s worst at Karaoke!

I enjoy cooking a variety of ethnic cuisines, travel, creative writing, skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, fishing, and scuba diving. Basically, if there is adventure, I’m up for it! I would love to expand my travel and explore the Maldives and the Amalfi coast of Italy.

I’m a true Texas girl and root for the Dallas Cowboys and UT Longhorns.

What do you like best about working at Stronghill?

At Stronghill, we have a super-committed, hard working team that collaborates well to achieve our common goals.  We have the ability to have a voice, be opinionated and to express our ideas with radical candor.  It’s not all work and no play at Stronghill –  the company rewards us with fun team events, and our group is a lively one after hours!

What is a rule that you live by?

I think it is important to always do what you say you are going to do, sometimes more – but never less. And that’s the Stronghill team in a nutshell.
