EMBLEM Developments Announces New Inside Sales Team | RENX
EMBLEM Developments, Canada’s leading forward-thinking residential developer, recently announced its latest exciting step towards offering a full range of comprehensive real estate services. Kash Pashootan, CEO of EMBLEM, proudly introduced the company’s new inside sales team of Alex Leung and Steve Cicekian earlier this week.
Pashootan says, “We went through a thorough process to identify two senior executives who would be more than just great salespeople. Steve and Alex have built longstanding relationships with the sales community by being genuine, honest and caring. These are traits that were really important to us. We will provide our agent network with a cohesive EMBLEM experience that will be based on direct access at launches, access to senior company leadership, and the EMBLEM+ program that recognizes sales excellence.
This news created a buzz in the industry; no surprise as EMBLEM has been very involved in everything they have done since day one, with attention to detail being paramount to the organization. Well capitalized and with some of the best talent in the industry working within the company, EMBLEM has been one of the most talked about success stories in the residential market. They have a very active pipeline and will release around 2,800 suites in 2022.
Last September the cranes soared above 1 Jarvis in Hamilton, and in October they soared at Artform in Mississauga. These highly anticipated developments are joined by EMBLEM’s Capital Park, a new community of cutting-edge mid-rise apartment buildings being built in Ottawa. This new development is progressing rapidly, with three buildings completed this year and the fourth building in 2023.
Of course, we couldn’t complete this list without mentioning Arte. On its way to becoming a landmark of contemporary luxury in Mississauga, the Arte community has gained a lot of momentum and attention in the industry, with its record sales of 90% in 3 weeks and construction beginning in the first quarter of 2022.
“The EMBLEM brand is the most important thing to us – it’s our reputation,” says Pashootan. “That means taking a long-term view with everything we do and never letting short-term benefits compromise what we build.”
“We felt it was time to take this commitment further, providing customers with direct access to EMBLEM itself,” said Shamil Jiwani, Vice President of Investments at EMBLEM. “Since our creation, we have worked on the relationships with our customers.”

The trust and security that develops from meaningful dialogue and face-to-face relationships only come in capable and experienced hands. Therefore, it’s no surprise that EMBLEM is thrilled to have notables Alex Leung and Steve Cicekian leading their sales team as VP of Sales and Marketing.
Alex Leung comes to EMBLEM with over 14 years of sales and marketing experience, with expertise in pre-construction residential developments. Prior to joining the EMBLEM team, Alex held several leadership positions at Great Gulf and SmartCentres – two of the largest real estate development companies in Toronto and Vaughan – including Vice President of Sales and Management, as well as official broker.
“EMBLEM is a tidal wave that has arrived and is taking everyone away. I’m so excited to be a part of this team, to champion these amazing developments – with not only attention to detail but a cutting-edge attention to design, EMBLEM has an “it factor”, and it’s obvious for everyone. –Leung, 2022
Steve Cicekian has 9 years of pre-construction condo experience and has successfully launched numerous mixed-use projects with a total sales volume of nearly $4 billion. Prior to joining EMBLEM, Steve served as Vice President at Baker Real Estate where he managed numerous large scale accounts.
“I’ve been very intrigued by EMBLEM for quite some time now. You can tell straight away that there’s something different about them and the way they think. They’re not trying to be different; they’re just EMBLEM’s attention to every detail in building a community is something that really speaks to me. I can point to a number of things and say, “That’s why people want to live here.” – Cicekian , 2022
EMBLEM’s new inside sales team marks another important milestone for this development behemoth and a testament to its forward-thinking attitude. The next few years will be an exciting time as the company continues to grow as one of Canada’s top companies.
