Abacus Capital (Abacus) is pleased to announce that Mason Ellerbe has been named a Partner at the firm.
Mason joined Abacus Capital 4 years ago and over his tenure has been instrumental in the platform’s rapid growth and diversification into new investment strategies. Mason’s responsibilities have grown from leading the execution of the firm’s individual investments to primary leadership over all of the firm’s multifamily and development efforts.
Since Mason joined Abacus Capital the firm’s portfolio has more than quadrupled to over $400M in gross assets under management fully distributed, notably including nearly 1,000 multifamily units owned or under construction.
“Mason exemplifies all of the core principles that we strive to embody at Abacus Capital – his leadership by example, his solution orientation and his grasp of both the capital markets and spatial markets, as well as the development process, make him a natural and well deserved addition to our partnership,” said Wes McAdams. “We look forward to decades of growth, collaboration and success with Mason representing Abacus in the marketplace.”
“From day one, we knew that Mason was a franchise guy, so we’re thrilled to have him as our partner moving forward,” said Brick Bryant. “What Mason brings to the team from a multifamily and development perspective is invaluable and the firm wouldn’t have been able to deliver the outsize returns to our clients that we’ve been able to achieve to date without his contributions.”
“I am extremely proud of the team and the track record that we have built over my first 4 years working with my new partners at Abacus and I am excited to take the next step as we continue to grow and evolve as a firm,” said Mason. “Most of all I am very appreciative for the opportunity provided to me by Wes and Brick to join them as an employee back in 2019 and to take this next step as a partner going forward.”
