Our Team Member
J.D’s role as the director of commercial real estate finance is to grow the CREF division by sourcing commercial real estate lending opportunities in Western Canada, with a focus on the greater Calgary area and Southern Alberta. Throughout his career, J.D. has been an integral member of teams that have raised over $500M in capital for land acquisition. These projects then went on to utilize billions more in phased construction financing over their lives. J.D.’s goal is to find win-win financing solutions for clients by combining his own extensive real estate experience with the deep and diverse bench strength that KV Capital personnel bring to the table.
J.D. was on the developer side of the business for over ten years, so he understands how developers think, what their goals are, and what they are really looking for. Bringing this perspective into the lending world allows him to better serve clients as he has over a decade of first hand experience walking in their shoes. In his spare time, J.D. enjoys exercising, spending time outdoors and with family.
