Stefan Steele

Senior Analyst, Credit Adjudication

Advisor. Analytical. Innovative.

“I add value by sharing my expertise in land and construction finance with the origination teams, helping them determine viable deals and appropriate structuring.”

Stefan joined the First National team in July 2017, bringing six years of experience in land acquisition and development finance, which includes expert knowledge of development costs and project returns, sophisticated modeling and automation skills and a keen understanding of planning regulations and zoning applications. As part of his role in advising the origination teams, Stefan creates complex financial models to enable the comparison of conventional vs. CMHC financing. With this added insight, originators can add a layer of detail when presenting options to clients. 

When he’s not adding value for First National borrowers, Stefan gets his exercise through gym workouts, TRX training and rollerblading. His hobbies also include downhill skiing and wine tasting.
