Prior to founding Orbis Mortgage Group in 2018, which to date has over 50 employees and brokers, including an underwriting team, and support staff, Teddy Kyres spent the better part of a decade as a mortgage specialist with BMO where he was a national leader in funded deals. Throughout his career he has funded over $1.5B in volume through more than 5,000 loans. Having worked in both environments, he developed a comprehensive understanding of the mortgage industry, from the intricacies of big banks and financial institutions to those of private and alternative lenders for both residential and commercial clients. His breadth of experience in the industry ranges from client service and team management, to operational and regulatory matters.
In addition, his partnership with the Coalition of Independent Mortgage Brokers of Canada means that he is connected to the state of the industry nation-wide, with access to resources in every province. With the support of this expansive network, he launched Orbis in 2018 with the intention of redefining the mortgage brokerage industry. Now, as one of the largest firms of its kind in Quebec, the team continues to strive towards this goal with immediate plans to expand further.
Teddy holds a BA in Economics from McGill University and has completed the Mini-MBA Program at McGill as well.
