“Kyle brings great healthcare experience to our platform where he can leverage his historical mortgage banking experience and client base by being able to offer a truly full suite of both capital markets and M&A solutions to his clients,” Bart Plank, co-head of Cain Brother’s healthcare group along with Zach Kau, said in a statement.
