President | Principal
We are saddened by the news of the passing of our founding partner, John Ingoglia.
A loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, cousin, nephew, partner, mentor, and friend to so many.
John's energy and attitude towards every aspect of his life are what made him so loved by so many. John loved to work out, box, mixed martial arts, and was also learning Chinese with his son. One of his greatest passions was his business, Socotra Capital, often referring to himself as "Hard Money John" when attending events and meeting with clients.
Founded in 2008 with his partner Adham Sbeih, John helped grow Socotra Capital into the premier private lender it is today. The business has originated over 1,500+ loans totaling over $700M+ worth of loans. John loved to work on any deal, always seeking a "win-win" solution for all stakeholders, whether it was a broker, borrower, or the investor.
His enthusiasm and attitude will be his enduring legacy, having fostered a culture that "seeks to understand before seeking to be understood."
We will miss his wit, energy, bravado, and fortitude.
He was truly a unique individual, a force of nature.
