SVP sees world differently, finds hidden value for owners

“Allegiancy’s business model is based on a transformational view of the $15 trillion commercial real estate market,” said Ron Mentus, senior vice president of quantitative analytics for Allegiancy. “Our model allows investors to participate in real estate, with dramatic downside protection while maintaining significant upside.”

Allegiancy is a commercial real estate asset manager focused on growth in secondary markets. The company has made a name for itself by resurrecting troubled properties without a massive capital infusion from their owners.

Mentus brings decades of experience in designing business efficiency and creating technology-driven performance throughout organizations.

Mentus said: “Being responsible for quantitative analytics means that I find what works best in a given situation, using all the available tools. Allegiancy’s analytical focus on the real estate asset management has already uncovered several areas where conventional wisdom meaningfully misprices asset economics.”

Mentus started his career at Greenwich Capital Markets as a financial analyst, where he traded on Asian, European, and U.S. markets. He spent eight years with Wells Fargo, where he was challenged to create the business infrastructure for a $1 billion per year direct mail origination facility. He then spent 15 years in financial and business consulting.

“Working for companies ranging in sizes, business models, and industries showed me several patterns,” said Mentus. “One was that the ability to apply economic principles to strategies, opportunities, and processes means you can prioritize resources and reach goals.”

“By applying tools from many disciplines, I learned to edit the accepted practices,” Mentus said. “This could often mean the difference between having to spend $100 instead of $10,000.”

Mentus earned his bachelor’s in economics, finance and accounting from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, and he earned his master’s from the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business. He enjoys running and cycling.

“I see the world differently,” said Mentus. “I find the places where there’s untapped value. That translates into real revenue for Allegiancy’s clients.”
