Marina Avisar to help guide the global PropTech firm’s expanding Canadian footprint and facilities management strategy in North America
Solon, Ohio – September 27, 2022 – MRI Software, a global leader in real estate technology, announced that it has appointed Marina Avisar as General Manager, Facilities Management for North America and Managing Director of Canada. The new leadership role is key to MRI’s strategic expansion in the Canadian market.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Marina to the MRI leadership team,” said John Ensign, President and Executive Managing Director of North America for MRI Software. “This is an exciting time for our company, particularly in Canada, as we’ve continued to grow our footprint, product portfolio and employee base to enable our clients to thrive in a competitive market. Marina’s extensive leadership background and track record of delivering tangible results will be instrumental to ensuring a future of sustainable growth and client success in the region.”
Avisar, who is based in Toronto, brings over 20 years of successful leadership experience in technology companies, with progressive roles across multiple disciplines, including engineering, sales, operations and product management. Most recently, she served as CEO at MoveSnap, CEO at Interdev Technologies and Vocantas, and Managing Director at Aspire Software.
“MRI is a globally respected PropTech leader. I’m excited about the opportunity to join a company whose track record of innovation is as inspiring as its vision for the industry’s future,” said Avisar. “In addition to spearheading our facilities management strategy in North America, I look forward to continue building on the solid foundation already in place, ensuring that we’re providing the products, services and support our Canadian clients need to stand out in a crowded market while securing, optimising and streamlining their business.”
Avisar’s addition to the MRI leadership team underscores the company’s commitment to strengthening its Canadian presence and resources to better serve its multifamily, commercial and occupier clients better. In fact, over the last year, MRI acquired two Toronto-based companies, Findspace (2021) and Angus Systems (2022), significantly enhancing its commercial marketing and facilities management capabilities.
To further support its growth in the region, MRI will establish a new regional data center to enable Canadian clients to have their data hosted in country. The new cloud environment will be available in Q1 2023.
