Ralph Herzka is the chairman and chief executive officer of Meridian Capital Group, a commercial real estate finance firm Herzka co-founded in 1991 with Aaron Birnbaum, Jeff Weinberg, and Howard Zuckerman. Over 30 years in the real estate advisory business, Herzka has negotiated $65 billion-worth of financing transactions. In March 2014, the Mortgage Observer ranked Herzka number 6 on its “50 Most Important People in Commercial Real Estate Finance”. Herzka is a co-founder of Beech Street Capital, LLC, a mortgage-banking firm that was sold to Capital One in 2013. He is also a founder of Ladder Capital, a commercial real estate lender and commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) originator. Prior to founding Meridian, Herzka was a principal of a mortgage broker called Gelt Funding (now GFI Capital).

In 2015, Herzka was one of the first major players in New York real estate to make a maximum personal contribution to the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump. -MK
