Clement Koo joins Avison Young's brokerage operations in Toronto North

TORONTO, May 18 /CNW/ - Mark Fieder, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the company's Ontario region, announced today that Clement Koo has joined Avison Young's brokerage operations in the company's Toronto North office.

Effective immediately, Koo joins Avison Young as a retail real estate broker, focusing on developing major retail client relationships in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) market and across North America.

"We are pleased to have Clement join Avison Young in Ontario. His experience and relationships with the tenant and landlord community will add further strength to our expanding retail team in the north GTA market," comments Fieder. "Clement is a team player and his deep knowledge of both urban and suburban retail markets will greatly enhance the services we provide to our existing and new clients."

Koo was most recently director of real estate at The Davis Group, where he focused on high pedestrian-traffic markets in the city of Toronto. (The company's retail banners include International News, Fit For Life and Pure Health.) Through his search for urban retail streetfront expansion opportunities, Koo has built relationships with landlords, property managers, tenants and the brokerage community, while enriching his knowledge of the Toronto market.

Prior to joining The Davis Group, Koo spent three years with DTZ Barnicke Ltd.'s retail division in Toronto as a real estate sales representative, working with both landlords and tenants throughout the GTA. His background also includes working for the Municipality of York as a service planner for York Region Transit.

A member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), Koo holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in geographic analysis from Ryerson University, where he was a research assistant to the Dean of Geography and conducted the first Chinese ethnic retail study in the GTA.

"The company's commitment to continually improve the quality and service it provides its clients, combined with its strategic plans to grow internationally, is something I am excited to be a part of," says Koo. "I look forward to working with the Ontario team and offering creative solutions to meet our clients' real estate objectives."

Over the past two years, Avison Young has grown from 11 to 23 offices and from 300 to more than 700 real estate professionals across Canada and in the U.S.
