Summary of the Role
Early on in your tenure at Colonnade BridgePort, your role will be hands on, providing you an opportunity to learn the Colonnade BridgePort structure and culture, while rolling up your sleeves conducting day-to-day leasing activities. The intermediate and long-term vision is focused on growth. You will use your knowledge of the GTA/GGH market to develop relationships with brokers and instill confidence in owners and investors that you can support their leasing needs. You will be in a client facing role that will see you managing the expectations of owners and asset managers, and delivering results as you support your team in the completion of leasing transactions.
