The Sorbara Group of Companies is pleased to announce the appointment of Bud Purves as our new C.E.O. “Bud’s appointment reflects a major turning point for the Sorbara Group of Companies. With it, we begin the transition from a family-owned, family-run business to a family-owned professionally managed enterprise. At the same time, we will position the organization to take on the growth opportunities and challenges that await us over the next decade,” said Edward Sorbara, Principal at the Sorbara Group of Companies.
Bud is a highly regarded real estate development and management executive with over 40 years’ experience in both the private and public sector. He comes to us from his current post at York University where he has served as the President of the York University Development Corporation. Bud held senior positions at some of Canada’s premier real estate companies, including TrizecHahn and Campeau Corporation. “The Sorbara Group of Companies has an outstanding reputation. The company offers first class treatment to employees, tenants, shareholders and partners. It is an honour to be able to assume a leadership position in a company with a vaunted and established tradition,” commented Bud Purves.
As Bud assumes the duties of C.E.O., Edward Sorbara will become the Sorbara Group of Companies’ new Executive Chair. We look forward to the new leadership Bud will bring from his own unique experience, and are very excited for what the future has to offer
