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.
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 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.
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.

Most recently, Mr. Mariniello initiated the firm’s involvement in advising New Jersey Counties and Municipalities on utilizing the funding that was created from the federal government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) Coronavirus Relief Fund (the “Fund”). The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was unprecedented, and our clients were faced with a new and financially strenuous situation. Mr. Mariniello assisted our clients with understanding the details and guidelines that were set by the U.S. Department of Treasury and then setting up the programs and documentation that would ultimately get funding to the municipalities and small businesses in our community. Mr. Mariniello continues to lead a team of NW staff members on this program and to date has been instrumental in getting over $100,000,000 in funding to local municipalities and small businesses in our communities.
