MONTREAL, Oct. 30, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Marc Vadeboncoeur, founder and CEO of Immodev, one of the largest commercial real estate brokerages in Quebec, announced today the appointment of renowned real estate entrepreneur, Stephen Leopold, as Chairman of the company.
"This exceptional recruitment speaks to the path of growth Immodev is taking, and the ambitious strategies we have chosen to follow," said Vadeboncoeur. "Stephen Leopold's unmatched experience in commercial real estate brokerage and development complements our vision. Mr. Leopold brings to Immodev an emphasis on tenacious planning on behalf of our clients, and strategic decision-making that results in optimal solutions. He will play a key role in helping us foster a unique knowledge-based agency as we substantially enlarge our presence in the Montreal region."
During his forty year career in real estate, Mr. Leopold created the concept of exclusive tenant representation and built a firm which became the leader in the industry. He has acted as chief advisor in some of the North America's most prominent real estate transactions, including the beverage and banquet facility in New York's World Trade Centre, and the redevelopment of Montreal's landmarked Windsor Hotel.
"Quebec is in need of its own commercial real estate brand, and Immodev is devoted to filling that important role," said Mr. Leopold. "Marc Vadeboncoeur and his team understand the impact of the digital world and how it has allowed for a revolutionary change in the paradigm of commercial real estate. Immodev's aims include establishing virtual and physical offices in every market and sub-market on and off the Island of Montreal and in the the province of Québec. We will be seeking out the best talent from across the real estate spectrum, and intend to make our brokers the most knowledgeable, effective, and best compensated in the region. I'm delighted to be joining Immodev as it grows to be recognized as the undisputed commercial real estate brand in Quebec."
Since its founding in 1996, Immodev has built a reputation as a Quebec-centric, solution-oriented commercial real estate broker. Having become one of the largest such firms in the province, Immodev acts for its clients in the sale or purchase of real estate, and in lease negotiations for office, industrial or retail space.
