Big News for First National's Quebec commercial operations
Jeremy Wedgbury, Senior Vice President, Commercial Mortgages
It is my distinct pleasure to announce the appointment of Michael C. Williams to the newly created role of Vice President, Quebec Region for First National's Commercial Division.
A Montreal native, Michael is a proven commercial real estate financing executive in the Quebec market who brings unique skills, relationships and experiences to this important role within First National's leadership team.
Michael joins us with a clear mandate to grow our business and an enviable 16-year track record as a high-performance team leader in commercial financing, most recently at National Bank in Montreal and prior to that at TD Bank where he served in the commercial mortgage group.
While Michael would be the first to say lending is a team sport, he was certainly a driving force in the successful development of the commercial real estate lending operations within both of these institutions and I consider it a coup that he has chosen to join First National.
For First National, this key appointment signals our deep commitment to Quebec as a conventional, bridge and CMHC-approved lender and underscores our intention to invest locally as a means of providing boots-on-the-ground service that is so critical to delivering our service mission to you.
Speaking on behalf the dedicated members of our Quebec team, I wish Michael bonne chance as he opens the next chapter in our growth story.
I know Michael will be in touch directly, but in the meantime, if you would like to know more about what we can do for you in areas such as property acquisitions/repositioning, construction financing or commercial term loans, please contact your sales advisor.
