JLL Canada has hired two executives from Cushman & Wakefield to enhance its retail agency leasing capabilities in Toronto.
Brandon Gorman and Graham Smith become senior vice presidents, reporting to Tim Sanderson, Executive Vice President and National Practice Lead of JLL's Retail division in Canada.
They add over a decade of urban retail experience to the JLL team, having worked with some of the largest Canadian landlords and tenants and they are considered among the best retail leasing professionals in the region.
"Brandon and Graham are outstanding additions to our team and will play an instrumental role in growing our business and expanding our relationships," said Tim Sanderson. "Their expertise in leasing high-street and urban retail properties as well as mixed-use developments will complement our existing service offering, cementing our position as Canada's top retail real estate service provider. Brandon and Graham will lead our retail agency leasing business and I look forward to them growing the team."
Explaining their decision to move from Cushman & Wakefield, Graham Smith said: "The firm's investment in retail combined with their robust tenant representation business will complement our core agency business very well and we look forward to the enhanced value we will be able to offer our clients.”
