Kyle Howerton

Senior Vice President

Mr. Howerton joined George Smith Partners in January 2014 and is responsible for underwriting and deal structuring as well as managing client and capital partner relationships. Since joining the firm, he has underwritten and placed more than $5 billion of debt and equity products across all product types and life cycles ranging from construction and permanent debt and highly-structured bridge loans to joint-venture, preferred equity, and mezzanine debt. Mr. Howerton has developed an in-depth knowledge of retail, multi-family, mixed-use, office, and industrial property types.

Although Kyle actively arranges debt and equity for middle-market and institutional clients across the country, he has developed an affinity for projects and assets located in St. Louis, Missouri. His primary focus for the past few years has been bringing coastal capital to St. Louis and he thoroughly enjoys educating clients and capital on the market.

Kyle holds an MBA in Finance from Gabelli School of Business in New York. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and Philosophy from Saint Louis University. He is a member of the Tower Grove Park Society and is co-chair of the Society for 2021-2022. He is also a member of ULI’s Advisory Services panel.
