The Bucharest office of Avison Young will be headed by David Canta.
At Avison Young, Canta will work closely with Hiren Thakar, a principal of Avison Young and the firm’s senior vice president of Corporate Strategy.

“We believe that Bucharest is an underserved market, offering great potential for increased local, national and international investment. Bucharest, which has a young, educated workforce, is a gateway to Eastern and Central Europe and aligns well with our other European operations. The new Bucharest office will also enhance our ability to facilitate multimarket transactions on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Mark E. Rose, chair and CEO of the consultancy.

Avison Young has rapidly grown in the latest years, up to 80 offices in 72 markets and more than 2,400 consultants in Canada, United States, Mexico and Europe, the company’s representative say.

Headquartered in Toronto, Avison Young was founded in 1978 and offers the owners and tenants consultancy services in real estate investments, leasing transactions, financing and loans for hotels, offices, retail, industrial and residential properties. (source:
