Mr. Boyd becomes the Company's second hire, where he joins the recently named National Sales Manager, John Sabey, in the continued distribution team build out. The Company previously engaged third party vendors and their wholesaling and national accounts teams to distribute preferred stock offerings for Gladstone Land and Gladstone Commercial, both publicly traded REITs. In his new role, Mr. Boyd will be responsible for managing relationships and business development efforts with broker-dealers and registered investment advisors and will support the distribution efforts of the Company's affiliated funds' current and future product offerings.

"Sean is an important addition to our distribution team. With the relationships he has developed throughout his career, he will be vital to developing our existing selling groups and expanding their size by adding more high-quality broker-dealers and RIAs. We think his relationships are very complementary to those that we already have, and we think Sean will fit in well with the other teams within The Gladstone Companies," said John Kent, Head of Capital Markets at The Gladstone Companies.
