HFZ Capital Group’s chief operating officer Laurie Golub is leaving the company after five years to become COO of Square Mile Capital.

In June, Square Mile appointed co-founder Craig Solomon as its new CEO. The firm is an significant commercial real estate lender in New York and is in talks to finance Essex Crossing’s office component with a $250 million construction loan, and recently provided the developers of one of Williamsburg’s tallest towers $150 million.

Golub joined HFZ in 2012 from Africa Israel USA and previously worked for Forest City Ratner Companies (now Forest City New York).

In 2012, Golub spoke to The Real Deal about her decision to adopt a daughter, which she called the “happiest thing I’ve ever done.” — Konrad Putzier
