During 1996-2005, Darren completed over 4,000,000 square feet of leasing and/or acquisition retail transactions in Western Canada. Darren’s wealth of experience includes project leasing, land sales and tenant mandate work for many of the leading firms in the industry.

Darren was instrumental in Staples entrance into the Western Canadian marketplace and has completed 35 plus deals with this notable retailer.
