Tim Kennedy

Assistant Vice President, Commercial Financing

Honest advisor. Urban expert. Relationship focus.

Tim joined the First National Financial commercial team in early 2016, bringing a unique expertise in commercial assets and infill land development.

For Tim, honest advice, direct communication and information sharing are the foundations necessary for building long-term client relationships.

Tim’s background is interesting and informs his approach to commercial financing. He was previously a commercial real estate investment sales representative and has a degree in urban and regional planning. So he can empathize with clients and relate to their needs while applying a more broad understanding of urban organization, infrastructure and development. Optimistic about Canadian real estate opportunities, Tim believes that resourcefulness can go a long way in helping clients unlock value and stay true to their visions.

Working at First National, Tim is excited to be part of such an entrepreneurial and supportive culture that manages to be professional without being bureaucratic. He feels empowered by having a team behind him that champions his growth both in philosophy and action.
