About this position
This is an incredible opportunity to create a new real estate investment advisory firm and a portfolio that will manifest positive changes for many, especially those who most need them. The Chief Real Estate Investment Officer will establish the Sacha office and work closely with the lead investor and an Investment Committee to identify and analyze opportunities that align with Sacha’s investment philosophy. As the leader of this start-up operation, they will need to establish Sacha’s internal culture and external presence – from building a team and creating an office, to developing the relationships that will further Sacha’s goals. They will connect with potential project and development partners such as First Nations governments, not-for-profit partners, institutions, cooperatives, and others. The Chief Real Estate Investment Officer will work on investment strategies and will use their vast network to identify real estate opportunities and lead the execution of projects, including public-private-partnership opportunities.
As the ideal candidate, you are an experienced real estate professional who has a demonstratable track record in building and executing on an investment strategy that provides fiscal, social and environment benefits. You understand all aspects of the investment and development process and are skilled at working in partnership with a wide range of entities to move projects forward. You are a team player who can roll up your sleeves and dive into the work, and ideally you have the capacity to move an entity from start-up to operations. You can establish an open and collaborative internal culture. You have an established network for contacts in the sector and are known for your interpersonal skills and ability to present to and work with a diversity of audiences. A track record in social investment is an asset, and a demonstration of a career that is driven by values that are aligned with Sacha’s is a must.
