MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 10, 2011 /CNW/ - Martin Dockrill, Avison Young Principal and Managing Director of the company's Mississauga office,
announced today that industry veteran Richard Haynes has joined Avison Young's brokerage operations in Mississauga.
Effective immediately, Haynes joins Avison Young as an Associate
Vice-President in the Mississauga industrial group, focusing on
industrial sales and leasing in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) West
market. He was most recently with DTZ Barnicke Limited in Mississauga.
"We are very pleased to have Richard come on board. With his strong
business development background, past successes and dedication to the
business, he will be a great fit to our growing Mississauga team,"
comments Dockrill. "Richard adds veteran experience to an already
talented industrial group with whom he has strong relationships."
Over the past two years, Avison Young has grown from 11 to 23 offices

Throughout his more than 20 years of experience in the commercial real
estate industry, Haynes has specialized in the sale and leasing of
industrial properties, land and design-build projects across Canada
with a focus on the western portion of the GTA. He has been involved in
more than 10 million square feet of industrial transactions and has
represented many large logistics companies and
internationally-recognized brands such as The Collier Group, Sameday

Haynes began his real estate career with Colliers Macaulay Nicolls in
1989 before moving to J.J. Barnicke Limited in 1992. He spent 19 years
with J.J. Barnicke (now DTZ), save for a two-and-a-half year period in
which he served as Director of Business Development for Internorth
Construction (2001 to 2004).
"I am thrilled to be joining Avison Young. The company's focus on
partnership with its employees, coupled with its strong commitment to
delivering real value and intelligence to clients, is something I am
proud to be associated with," says Haynes. "After 20 years in the
business, I am excited by this new challenge and the opportunity to
work with a very talented group in the Mississauga office, some of whom
are friends and former colleagues."
