On Monday, Vancouver-based real estate marketing and sales firm McNeill Lalonde and Associates (MLA Canada) announced the appointment of Randolph "Randy" Pratt as the firm's new President.
Pratt joined MLA Canada as of July 10, the company says, and is "poised to play a pivotal role in driving MLA Canada towards continued growth and success."
MLA Canada was founded by Cameron McNeill and Ryan Lalonde in 2016 after MAC Marketing Solutions and BLVD Marketing Group merged, and have sold and marketed over 360 projects and achieved over $14B in gross sales volume, according to the company.
Pratt will be stepping into the President role formerly held by Ryan Lalonde, who MLA Canada says will remain with the company and "transition into a role that focuses on leveraging his skills, expertise, and long-term vision for the company" as well as prioritize client relationships.
MLA Canada tells STOREYS that Lalonde's title will now be Co-Founder and Executive Director, sharing those titles with McNeill.
"Pratt will be an invaluable asset to our organization as we position ourselves for future readiness, positive market conditions, and a growing pipeline," McNeill and Lalonde said.
Pratt's role will involve collaborating closing with the executive team to "foster innovation, drive expansion into new geographies, and continue to build on the company's reputation for excellence."
In July 2022, MLA Canada announced an expansion into the Okanagan, with Taylor Musseau acting as the Partner and Managing Director of MLA Okanagan.
"I am thrilled to join MLA Canada and be part of the dynamic team that is shaping the real estate landscape," Pratt said. "We eagerly anticipate working collaboratively to accomplish the visionary goals that have been established, while actively contributing to the continuous success of the company."
Pratt was previously the President of Adera Capital Corp, as well as the Director of Terrapin Mortgage Investment Corp, Sensus Communication Solutions, and Structurlam, all of which Adera has holdings in, but does not use exclusively.
Structurlam, a mass timber products company, was recently acquired by Mercer Mass Timber -- a subsidiary of global forest products company Mercer International -- after filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
This article has been updated to add that Adera does not exclusively use companies it has holdings in.
