Raymond James Tax Credit Funds hired Noel Henderson-James as associate director of acquisitions for the Northeast region. Based in New York City, Henderson-James will focus on property acquisitions, managing existing business and cultivating relationships with developers and investors.

Henderson-James has 16 years of experience in the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) business, most recently as vice president at a national tax credit syndicator where he focused on upfront structuring of complex transactions, including reviewing tax-related issues, and negotiating the business terms contained in the lower tier partnership agreement with all developer clients.

He has broad and deep experience syndicating multiple transaction types, in particular mixed-income projects, multi-building portfolio acquisitions, supportive housing, and projects combining LIHTC with federal and state historic tax credits. He also has significant experience developing affordable housing, having worked in the Chicago office of a large national developer and in New Orleans with the largest non-profit affordable housing developer in Louisiana.

“Noel is well-regarded for delivering superior service to his developer clients,” said Steve Kropf, president and CEO of RJTCF. “Improving communities and offering our investor clients quality and impactful investment opportunities is the core of our business, and we’re looking forward to Noel’s assistance as we continue to expand our market-leading national platform.”

Darryl Seavey, managing director of the Northeast region, added, “We are very excited to have Noel on board. His diverse skills and industry experiences, combined with RJTCF’s vast resources and diverse investor relationships, will make him an integral part of the RJTCF team.”

Henderson-James holds a master’s in urban planning and policy from the University of Illinois-Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in history from Carleton College.
