Kevin Gardner

Senior Director, Mortgage Origination

Bio

Kevin has been an integral member of the Canada ICI team since 2010 and leverages his deep commercial real estate relationships to position his clients with market-leading debt and equity solutions that facilitates growth and future success. Kevin’s unique background as a Division I NCAA college athlete and his European hockey experience serves as a platform for the goal-oriented, determined, and forward-thinking solutions he provides industry-leading developers and landlords every day.

I like working in commercial real estate finance because a successful real estate finance transaction requires a diverse skill set—an understanding of financial modelling, construction, budgeting, design, leasing and legal securities. No two deals are the same, and we have the ability to make a positive impact on all asset classes.

Before I joined CICI, I played professional hockey in Germany, Denmark, and the United States and was an NCAA Division I, college athlete.

What I like most about working at CICI is that the same traits required to be a part of a successful hockey team applies to working here. Teamwork, resilience, grit, working towards a common goal and comradery.

It comes down to understanding what our client values: communication. I strongly believe setting the table for appropriate expectations is key.
