TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 4, 2015) - Newmark Knight Frank Devencore is pleased to announce that Sean Fiset, a commercial real estate industry veteran, has joined the rapidly growing Toronto West office as Vice President and Sales Representative1 to focus on growing the industrial client base.

Prior to joining Newmark Knight Frank Devencore, Mr. Fiset worked with two other global firms helping companies solve their real estate needs by tailoring solutions that were aligned with their corporate objectives.
