In May 2021, Brooke Carillo took over her role as chief financial officer at Redwood Trust — a specialty finance company focused on several distinct areas of housing credit. Carillo brought with her years of industry relationships and transactional experience, which Chris Abate — Redwood’s CEO — highlighted would further strengthen the company’s executive leadership team.
Prior to her time at Redwood, Carillo served as head of Corporate Strategy at Annaly Capital Management. There she held a variety of roles for more than a decade of service, including membership on the firm’s operating committee and oversight of its corporate strategy, capital markets and investor relations departments. She also has previous experience in investment banking and worked as part of the Financial Institutions Group at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
