Current CEO Evan Gentry will step back from day-to-day operations and become the Chairman of M360 Advisors effective April 5, 2021. Gentry has accepted a three-year assignment from his church to serve as a mission president and will oversee the New York Syracuse mission.

Maute has played a critical role at M360 since inception more than five years ago, both as an early investor and advisor.

His previous roles include Executive Vice President & Global Head of Distressed Investment at GMAC, where he grew six distressed commercial real estate investment companies in five different countries; Co-Founder of Helios AMC, a nationally-rated special servicing company for commercial real estate loans, which he grew to more than $4 billion in assets under management prior to its merger with Situs; and senior managing director at Situs, a world-leading company providing commercial real estate services and solutions. During his tenure at GMAC, Maute worked with newly appointed Money360 CEO, Tom MacManus, for nearly a decade.

The broader senior leadership team at M360 will remain in place. Matthew Koelliker, who joined M360 Advisors in February 2020 after nearly 10 years at PIMCO, was promoted to President of M360 Advisors last year. Koelliker, along with Laura Catalino, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, will continue to oversee client relationships and capital raising efforts.
