Age: 32

Years in the industry: 4

After spending more than a decade in the banking industry, working for three of Canada’s major banks, Inam Qureshi observed a need for commercial mortgage brokers who weren’t tied to a single institution. So, in 2015, he founded Syndicate Lending Corp. with the goal of making a difference in the lives of his clients.

Qureshi received confirmation that he was on the right path earlier this year when he was named a finalist for Commercial Broker of the Year at the 2019 Canadian Mortgage Awards. “This was a truly a testament that we have now made it in the commercial space and our efforts are being recognized,” he says. “For a first-generation immigrant who came to Canada back in 2006 as an 18-year-old on a one-way ticket, this is indeed the ‘yay!’ moment.”

Qureshi attributes his success to his mother, “who applied for Canadian immigration back in 2004, only to see me realize my dream. I dedicate my story to this strong lady for what she has gone through to make us what we are today.”
