This is a big move for Fortress, as the quickly expanding development company has landed a top notch real estate veteran.
Myers is known as the go-to guy for quotes on the Toronto real estate market and can frequently be found on speaker’s lists at industry events. In other words, he’s one of the most reputable real estate analysts in Canada and his presence will add tremendous value to Fortress and their portfolio of developments in nine major Canadian markets.
“Ben is one of the most knowledgeable analysts in the real estate industry and we are thrilled to have him on-board with Team Fortress,” said Jawad Rathore, President and CEO, Fortress Real Developments, in a press release.
“With one of the country’s leading experts on market research in house, it will allow Fortress to move more quickly and efficiently to capitalize on the best opportunities in the Canadian market for us, for our partners and for all those participating in our business process.”
Myers began working at Urbanation, the real estate market research firm, in 2007 where he served as Executive Vice President. He possesses over 12 years of experience in market analysis and research in Toronto and Dallas.
“The depth, breadth and scope of Fortress’ offerings is what attracted me to them,” Myers said in a press release.
“With 34 active projects in nine major Canadian cities, totaling more than $2 billion in built out value, I was particularly impressed by what they have accomplished over the past two years. I am thrilled to be joining such a dynamic team and excited about the opportunity to lend my expertise to ensure the highest possible return for our partners and investors.”
Congratulations to both Myers and Fortress!
