RKF launches Toronto office
New York — RKF has opened an office in Toronto and named Steven Alikakos president, Canada. RKF’s Canadian expansion comes just weeks after the firm formalized an affiliation with the U.K.-based retail consulting firm CWM Retail Property Advisors.
A growing number of American retailers have launched stores north of the border in recent years, a trend expected to continue. Likewise, the U.S. has seen a wave of expansions from Canadian retailers. RKF hopes to play a role in sustaining and accelerating cross-border retail migration.
Steven Alikakos brings more than 22 years of retail leasing expertise to his new post. He most recently served as senior VP and senior manager at DTZ Canada (formerly J.J. Barnicke).
