Dustin Pevear brings a broad range of experience into his current role as Senior Vice President, Director of Screening, which he assumed in 2022. This role brings him full circle, as he joined Arbor in 2008 as a Senior Analyst on the Boston-based Front End Screening team and has since served in underwriting, agency lending and other client-facing departments of the REIT.
Mr. Pevear was previously Chief Underwriter of Freddie Mac Small Business Loans (SBL) for three years and was Vice President, Agency Lending Operations for four. His current expertise spans those areas plus deal structuring with a focus on both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as deal management, process development and efficiency enhancement.
He is a member of Arbor’s Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Arbor Private Label Loan Committees, and he plays an integral role in helping Arbor establish and grow its position in the marketplace and in building relationships across agency partners. Mr. Pevear is a contributor to Arbor’s Be the Best You can Be video series, in which he advises emerging talent at the firm.
Prior to joining Arbor, Mr. Pevear spent several years as a financial analyst with Digitas North America. He received a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Marketing from Boston College.
