Our Team

Relationships Matter.

Kirtland’s success is due in large part to the commitment and strength of our team. We have one of the most experienced investment teams in our market. Our partners have been working together for over 15 years to successfully acquire, manage and exit investments through varying economic conditions, including four recessionary periods. We work together in a very collegial environment that promotes teamwork and mutual respect.
