starting his career in the banking industry provided Darvin a solid foundation from which he was able to quickly and successfully transition into the investment arena and become the Top Canadian Senior Financial Producer for a large insurance firm.
Darvin was a pioneer in the industry; bringing the first sizeable exempt market distribution channel in Western Canada. Known as Alberta Land & Investment Brokers, this company was recognized as Alberta’s fastest growing company in 2010 by Alberta Venture (under $20 million category).
