Douglas B. Twillman
Executive Vice President | SIOR | CFA | Broker
Doug Twillman directs and coordinates the acquisitions and capital markets functions for Dunhill Partners West (DPW). Mr. Twillman serves as a principal to locate, evaluate, capitalize, and asset-manage for the DPW commercial property portfolio. Mr. Twillman’s unique combination of structured finance experience combined with “hand’s on” management style allows him to proactively lead the core functions of sourcing, due diligence, funding, investor relations and compliance for each new holding. Doug leads the implementation of our ESG mandate to reduce the energy footprint of properties that we acquire by applying a combination of energy efficiency improvements and solar energy offsets to drive our commercial assets to net zero energy consumption. This translates to a meaningful operating expense offset resulting in material increased property value.
Mr. Twillman joined DPW in 2014 with 11 years of experience as a principal building private equity groups for several multi-family commercial real estate transactions in California and out of state plus 15 years in structured finance at Bank of America where he originated, structured and syndicated over $1 billion in equipment and real estate facilities transactions from 1989 to 2003. This valuable experience afforded him the opportunity to serve as the client interface leading transaction teams (appraisal, inspections, pricing, credit, contract administration, legal) for over 250 transactions for local, domestic and international bank customers.
Upon graduation from UC Davis and then while attending the University of San Francisco Mr. Twillman worked as an analyst in the energy industry for one Seattle based and two SF Bay Area based energy and environmental engineering / consulting companies including Pacific Gas & Electric Company.
