Can I transfer a Mass Effect 1 character to a different steam acct?

Hi my friend recently let me use his steam account in which I played and finished Mass Effect 1. I am actually in the midst of downloading Mass Effect 2 when I saw that it is on sale today on Steam. Since I would not be able to keep my friend's account forever, is it possible for me to transfer my saved Shepard from his Mass Effect account to my own if I do purchase Mass Effect 2?

I'm wondering because since I would not have Mass Effect 1 on my own steam account, ME2 may not recognize the fact that I do have a saved character. So is my best bet to transfer saves and hope for the best or should I start a ME2 save with my friend's account with my own character and transfer that ME2 save to my own steam account?

Any help would be extremely appreciated.

All you need is your most recent game save from ME1 and you can import the character
