About Paul Rahimian

Parkview Financial founder and CEO Paul Rahimian manages a national debt fund that provides construction financing to ground-up real estate development projects. Since launching the Fund in 2015, Parkview has successfully executed more than $4 billion in financing for multifamily, retail, office, industrial and mixed-use projects with executed loans ranging from $5 million to $200 million. Rahimian founded Parkview Financial in early 2009 during the Great Financial Crisis when many were not lending to developers and has since originated hundreds of commercial and residential loans. His responsibilities include overseeing the firm’s growing team and offices and expanding the firm’s investor base. Rahimian has also spearheaded the geographic expansion of the firm’s lending reach from the West to the entire US, including an office in New York City that opened in 2022. That year, the firm completed more than $1 billion in lending activity and its Assets Under Management increased by 43% throughout 2021. He is described as a hands-on manager and recognized as an industry pioneer who was one of the first to offer complete integration of loan origination and servicing under one roof. Before becoming a lender, Rahimian was a third-generation real estate developer and general contractor. Between 1988 and 2009, he completed more than $350 million in commercial and residential projects. He is continuing to pursue professional development by participating in a three-year executive program at Harvard Business School for owners and CEOs of successful companies around the world and is currently completing the final year of the program.
