Baker, who joined DWC in 2019, has been appointed or served as a principal agent in more than 150 receivership mandates from banks, private equity, debt funds, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC ) and the Ministry of Justice. Many projects combine the firm’s expertise as a receiver and DWC’s nationally recognized institutional real estate development and advisory platform.
Previously, Baker was Receiver for 10 years at Mosier & Company, Inc. of Costa Mesa, a court appointed crisis management and trust company.
“Ryan is a rising star in receivership with the perfect combination of professional credibility, experience and education,” said Douglas Wilson, CEO and Chairman of the Board of DWC. “During his three years with us, he has been extraordinarily good at managing complex litigation, leading various businesses, overseeing forensic accounting and dealing with government regulators. As we strategically develop the next generation of leaders at DWC, Ryan is a key member of the team.
Baker’s most important assignment as federal receiver of shares involved an alleged billion dollar Ponzi scheme exposed in Federal Court by the SEC. His team traced $ 1 billion of investments from nine investors over a 10-year period in 46 investment vehicles and returned $ 336 million to the victims.
Recently, he completed an assignment involving a portfolio of 18 plots, comprising apartment, retail, office and hospitality assets in Southern California. The complex assignment resulted in a return of $ 134 million to creditors.
Ryan received a BA in Economics from New York University and an MBA from the University of Southern California. He is a director of the California Receivers Forum and a member of the National Association of Federal Equity Receivers and the California Bankruptcy Forum.
