Real estate analytics firm Clear Capital appointed Gabriel Nacht as its first chief financial officer. Before joining the firm, Nacht was the senior vice president and CFO for Bustos Media and software firm Meridian Project Systems. He also held senior positions at Philips Publishing International and Bank of Boston. Nacht said Clear Capital fit the publishing and technological blend in his background. The firm puts out a monthly home price index ahead of the widely used Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller. It has always had an accounting and finance staff, with a controller function, but no CFO. The company has now grown to the point where a CFO is needed, a company spokesperson said. Clear Capital also appointed Brian Wick as vice president of marketing and last week brought in Erik Lundquist to head up its commercial valuations teams. The segment will develop commercial broker priced opinions, appraisals and inspections. Write to Jon Prior. Follow him on Twitter @JonAPrior.
