"Prior to co-founding the firm in 1994, he served as a Managing Director at the Real Estate group at Morgan Stanley, which he joined in 1979. Mr. Walton serves as a Director of Florida Rock Industries Inc., since 2003. He is a Director of Crow Family Holdings. He served as a Director of The St. Joe Co." [1]

As Allied Small Business Investment "moved into the big time, so did Walton, who became a pillar of the local establishment. He has served as president of the National Symphony, treasurer of Wolf Trap, a trustee of the National Gallery of Art, a member of the Federal City Council, and a director of the American Enterprise Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. His private clubs include Metropolitan, Burning Tree and Chevy Chase. He traveled the country in Allied's corporate jet and by 2007 was earning just under $11 million in cash and stock, and he had houses in Washington's Kalorama neighborhood and in Little Washington -- Washington, Va. The first signs of trouble for Walton and Allied came in 2002, when hedge fund manager David Einhorn took a large short position in Allied stock and went public with accusations that the company was overvaluing its investment portfolio and covering up a problem with fraudulent lending at a small-business lending unit. " [2]

His father is William H. Walton, Jr.
