LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc. (HPP) today announced the opening of the company’s office in Vancouver, and named seasoned real estate executive and Vancouver native Chuck We as Senior Vice President, Western Canada.

We previously led Vancouver operations and leasing, and was significantly involved in acquisitions and development for Oxford Properties Group, the real estate investment arm of OMERS, one of Canada’s largest pension plans. We will now oversee Hudson Pacific’s expansion into the Vancouver market, including renovation of the 1.45 million-square-foot Bentall Centre office and retail complex. Joint venture partners Hudson Pacific and Blackstone Property Partners closed yesterday on their purchase of Bentall Centre.

Hudson Pacific rounded out its Vancouver team by hiring David Haugen as Leasing Director. Haugen’s experience includes oversight of leasing for large office and industrial portfolios for Canderel, Bentall Kennedy, and the Canadian government’s real estate division.

Victor Coleman, Chairman and CEO of Hudson Pacific, said: “We are thrilled to officially open our Vancouver office, and to welcome Chuck and David to the Hudson Pacific team. Their extensive experience, established relationships, and deep market knowledge will facilitate our growth in Vancouver, and enable us to replicate the success we have enjoyed across all our West Coast markets.”

Prior to Oxford Properties Group, We held real estate management positions at Bentall Properties, Royal LePage Commercial and BCI. He currently serves on the board of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA). We earned both a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance, Marketing and International Business, and a Master of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University.
