Urban Partnership Bank, the successor to failed ShoreBank, said Levoi Brown, 33, formerly an asset management director with General Electric Real Estate, has joined the South Side bank as the new director of commercial real estate.

Brown will be responsible for Urban’s commercial and multi-family real estate portfolio in Chicago, Cleveland, and Detroit. He reports to Urban Chief Executive William Farrow.

Brown spent 10 years at GE’s real estate business, working in the company’s affordable housing group and capital markets services. While at GE, his duties included securitizing transactions and conducting due diligence on potential developments. He also worked on programs related to the Low Income Housing Tax Credit.

Brown began his career in the financial services industry as a financial planner for Prudential Individual Financial Services, before joining Heller Financial which was later acquired by GE. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and expects to complete his MBA at the University of Chicago this spring.

He lives on the South Side, attends Apostolic Church of God, and is involved with the Teen Living Program, a nonprofit supportive-housing center for young adults estranged from their families.
