The fivesome includes Morris Betesh, Justin Boruchov and three junior associates who could not immediately be identified.

Betesh was previously a managing director at C&W Capital Services, with a focus on transactions in the Hudson Yards, Midtown West and Penn Station neighborhoods of Manhattan. Boruchov was a director at C&W Capital Services, with a focus on the Upper West Side.

It wasn’t clear whether the five are on Meridian’s payroll yet.

“It’s pretty fresh. From my understanding it just happened,” said a source familiar with the exit.

Both Meridian and C&W declined to comment on the moves, and no further information could immediately be gleaned.
