  • Daniel C. Mariniello


    Daniel C. Mariniello, Principal, has been with NW Financial since 1997, providing the firm with his public finance, and management experience and expertise. Mr. Mariniello acts as senior/lead advisor to many of the firm’s major clients, has structured a variety of innovative transactions, directs the firm’s affordable housing practice and manages much of the firm’s operations.

    Currently, Mr. Mariniello heads the firm’s financial consulting practice for Public Housing Authorities (“PHAs”) that are converting through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (“HUD”) Rental Assistance Demonstration (“RAD”) program. Through his leadership, PHAs throughout New Jersey are successfully participating in this program and as a result are completing over $25 million in rehab work with over $20 million in financings.  Whether it is a tax credit redevelopment project, or a straight financing, Mr. Mariniello and NW have been guiding PHAs through this program since 2013. Mr. Mariniello speaks regularly at industry events including NJ Governor’s Conference on Housing, the National Affordable Housing and Redevelopment Official’s (“NAHRO”) Conferences, and many NJ NAHRO seminars.

    Over the past decade, Mr. Mariniello has become an expert in redevelopment throughout New Jersey representing municipal clients as they negotiate with sophisticated developers. He has also acted as an expert witness providing necessary testimony in cases on behalf of his clients. Mr. Mariniello has provided redevelopment consulting for clients such as the Borough of Fort Lee, the City of Linden, and the Township of Bloomfield.

    Mr. Mariniello also plays an instrumental role acting as lead banker to several other government entities, including the City of Newark, Passaic County, Passaic County Improvement Authority, and Bergen County.  Additionally, Mr. Mariniello has led various consulting projects on behalf of his financial advisory clients including asset sales and lease programs, public/private partnerships, the creation of public authorities, and cash flow analysis for rate-based utilities.

    Mr. Mariniello has been leading the firm’s housing industry business since 2005. Mr. Mariniello acted as Managing Director for the firm’s federal work with the HUD’s Mark-to-Market program. Under his first-rate management, NW Financial restructured more than $500 million in FHA insured loans through this program. It is through these vast restructurings that have merited Mr. Mariniello the recognition as a public housing financial expert earning him invitations to speak amongst colleagues at various conferences including the Jersey Affordable Housing Management Association’s (“JAHMA”) and the National Affordable Housing Management Association (“NAHMA”).

    In 2004/2005 Mr. Mariniello was successful in getting NW Financial approved by HUD to perform Management Assessments for Public Housing Authorities across the Country. As a result, NW performed over 50 Management Assessments from New Jersey to California and became intimately involved in understanding the administrations role within a PHA. As a result of the completion of the reports hundreds of millions of dollars were borrowed through HUD’s Capital Leveraging Program providing much needed repairs to the Nation’s public housing stock.
