Cannava to Lead Multifamily Capital at Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo‘s corporate and investment bank appointed Peter Cannava to lead multifamily capital (MFC) within its commercial real estate (CRE) group. In his role, Cannava will oversee all teams that execute on government‑sponsored enterprise (GSE) financing for market rate apartments, affordable housing, manufactured housing, student housing, healthcare properties and senior housing developments. Based in New York, Cannava will report to Kara McShane, head of CRE and assumed the position on Feb. 27.

“Pete brings exceptional experience and perspective, from throughout his tenure at Wells Fargo, including critical relationships across the government and agency finance sector, and is well positioned to lead our top‑ranked multifamily platform,” Kara McShane, head of commercial real estate at Wells Fargo, said. “We look forward to leveraging his expertise and insights as we continue to further position our Multifamily Capital platform for future success.”

Cannava joins CRE from Wells Fargo’s municipal products group. Over the course of his 14‑year career at Wells Fargo, Cannava has established himself as an accomplished investment banker in the municipal finance industry focused on multifamily housing, securitizations, real estate and project finance. Most recently, he served as head of public finance, leading the bank’s origination businesses within the municipal products group. In this role, he built important new business ventures in collaboration with multiple verticals across CIB, including creating a leading affordable housing platform in partnership with multifamily capital, community lending & investment and commercial real estate securitizations and capital markets. Prior to joining Wells Fargo, Cannava spent nine years at Bank of America.

“I’m excited to take on this new role and bring my capital markets, investment banking and client‑focused coverage approach to the MFC business as we look to grow our market share and product offerings,” Cannava said. “I look forward to working closely with Kara, the CRE leadership team and the strong MFC team as we continue to deliver client‑focused solutions that drive growth through strategic business initiatives.”
