STCE Announces New Name and Executive Director of Federal Historic Tax Credits

Press Release ( - Atlanta, GA - Sep 08, 2016 - ​​​State Tax Credit Exchange (STCE) is excited to welcome NGP Capital, a national syndicator and advisor of Federal and state tax credit investments, into the firm. The two firms will join forces to create a significant historic tax credit syndication business of national scope.  Both STCE and NGP Capital have previously operated robust historic tax credit syndication businesses.  By merging their combined organizations there will be significant synergies through expanded access to capital, contacts and expertise.  Rick Chukas will become the Managing Director of Monarch’s Federal Historic Tax Credits and will lead that segment of business from Nashville, TN.

This combination continues the progression of STCE beyond state tax credits and into more diverse opportunities. In August, STCE officially became Monarch Private Capital, a move that provides the flexibility to represent the firm’s efforts in new investment areas, expanded federal credit offerings and new partnerships.  Monarch Private Capital is more reflective of the opportunities where the firm is increasing its direct investment in projects delivering high quality state and federal tax credits, as well as non-credit investments.  Its tax credit business will operate under the banner of Monarch Tax Credits.

“We’ve outgrown our core business and have realized opportunities where we can leverage the experience and knowledge of our people to grow into new markets.”

“We are thrilled to bring Rick Chukas on board as our Managing Director of Federal Historic Tax Credits,” said Strobel. “Rick and his firm have partnered with STCE for many years. The synergies between the two firms further solidifies our national growth.  I’ve known Rick for over thirty years and we were partners together at Arthur Andersen.  He is a terrific real estate expert. It’s great to have the opportunity to partner with Rick again”

“I’m excited about combining the capabilities and platforms of STCE and NGP Capital and helping lead Monarch’s federal historic tax group into the future,” said Chukas.
