President and CEO
Frank Lonardelli is a driven entrepreneur committed to innovation and strategic thinking, with an aptitude to foster a dedicated executive team and the ambition to ensure success for each and every Arlington Group endeavour.
Frank completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Winnipeg and an Executive Master’s Program at the Sloan School of Management. Diversity in education, life experience and a strong business acumen has allowed Frank to become a prominent figure in the business community and specifically in the real estate industry. Over the last 7 years, Frank has developed a multiple award-winning real estate investment firm that has amassed and developed some of the most high profile development sites in Calgary’s inner city core.
Growing up on Arlington Street in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Frank faced challenges that immeasurably shaped his business acuity and defined his ambitions and goals. His greatest achievement is the Arlington Street Foundation Scholarship, dedicated to cultivating the talents and inner beauty of underprivileged youth. The program was launched in 2009 to honour those who believed in him while he was a student at Gordon Bell High School, and give back by creating opportunities for deserving students facing their own adversities in life. He intends to expand the program nationally within the next 5 years.
Under Frank’s astute leadership, the Arlington Group has been recognized as a four time winner (2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018) of the PCMA commercial Real Estate Deal of the Year award. Frank has also been recognized as one of Alberta’s 2016 Business Leaders of the Year and was recently named as an EY 2016 Entrepreneur for the Year Finalist.

With a background in finance Kent originally started on the trading desk of a Vancouver mutual fund dealership where he quickly rose to become the youngest branch manager in British Columbia overseeing a staff of 7 with 75 financial advisors representing $1 Billion+ of client assets.
Working with high net worth clients and the advisors who counselled them Kent continually increased his knowledge on product offerings in the market and grew as a businessman. Through this process Kent learned about and received exposure to private equity investment offerings and it transitioned him towards a passion for private real estate development product offerings.
By his mid 30’s Kent’s network of contacts and his business acumen for providing access to high quality private real estate offerings led him into full time consultancy with a focus in two areas. The first was providing family office’s across Canada with access to exclusive opportunities by either Partnering with other family offices under a Club Deal, Partnering solely with, or becoming a Limited Partner in real estate projects with high quality developers. The second was in partnering with select Canadian IIROC dealerships on a project by project basis where financial advisors and portfolio managers could bring previously unattainable real estate development opportunities to their high net worth clients.
Kent witnessed Frank moderating a Real Estate panel in 2014 when consulting for a large family office who was looking to place capital into Western Canadian Real Estate. Impressed by what Frank spoke to and ASI’s care and attention put into having “transparent long term repeatable investment partnerships”, Kent introduced himself to Frank and that conversation led to where he is today in The Arlington Street Group of Companies.
Kent manages all existing investment partner relationships for the company in addition to expanding relationships in the Family Office, IIROC Dealership and with Institutional Firms in Canada. He is responsible for bringing new capital investment partners into the company as it continues to expand and for all communications to investment partners as the company completes on construction of its existing $1.5 Billion+ in post development value real estate projects in Kelowna, BC and Calgary, AB.
