"The collaborative culture at Avison Young was very attractive to me and appealed to my team-based approach to agency leasing. The company is characterized by lots of energy and strong leadership among its seasoned professionals, along with a talented younger generation of brokers. The landlord leasing platform that Grant Sumner, Chuck Sellers and Dale Ray have built up over the past few years will give me a tremendous advantage going forward with our client base due to their market coverage and knowledge."
