Chuck We has been named senior vice president, Western Canada for Hudson Pacific Properties’ new Vancouver office.
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. The purchase is a joint venture between Hudson Pacific and Blackstone Property Partners.
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.”

He currently serves on the board of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA).
