Avison Young hires office leasing specialist Adam Walman in Toronto

Downtown market expert to represent tenants and landlords

TORONTO, May 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Mark Fieder, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the company's Toronto office, announced today that office leasing professional Adam Walman has joined the firm to further grow the company's transaction services platform.

Effective immediately, Walman joins Avison Young as a sales representative based in the Downtown Toronto office. Most recently, Walman spent more than five years as a sales representative at Smith Company's Toronto office, specializing in office leasing in Downtown and Midtown Toronto and representing both landlords and tenants.

At Avison Young, Walman will continue to focus on providing both landlord and tenant representation services to clients, bringing his experience to the Downtown leasing group's service offering.

"We are pleased to welcome Adam as a member of our Downtown Toronto team," comments Fieder.  "His client-centric approach to transactions makes him an excellent fit for our organization, while his knowledge and experience of Toronto's office leasing markets will help to expand our platform of client services in the city. In addition, Adam will further augment our leasing group's ability to provide our clients with effective solutions with regard to their LEED and 'green'  real estate needs - areas which are becoming ever more important in lease negotiations, for both landlords and tenants."

Walman holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Guelph, where he majored in housing and real estate management, and has earned an accreditation as a LEED Green Associate.  He is currently a candidate for the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation.

"Avison Young is a group of entrepreneurial, solutions-focused real estate people who are going through an unprecedented growth phase," says Walman.  "I've always felt that the combination of culture, professionalism and alignment with client motivations, which is the foundation of Avison Young's business, is something that I identify with strongly.  I am looking forward to contributing to the company's continued growth and success."
