The Toronto-headquartered commercial real estate services firm Avison Young has promoted Harry Klaff to U.S. President.

Klaff joined the company in October 2020 as president of clients and is based in Washington, D.C.; earlier in his career, he was executive managing director at JLL. He succeeds Juan Bueno, who is leaving the firm for a new opportunity.

“Harry has been an integral part of Avison Young’s team for nearly three years and I’m excited to see him transition into the role of U.S. President,” said Mark E. Rose, chairman and CEO of Avison Young. “He has made significant strides in bolstering our reach and offerings in the occupier, owner, and investor spaces, and his depth of experience – specifically in client-facing roles – will allow him to provide invaluable support to our teams as we work to continue creating real value for clients.”
