Fred Waks

President & CEO

I want Trinity to be known for our ability to realize the full potential of an opportunity, and for having the expertise to deliver lasting value for our investors — and our communities.

Fred Waks joined Trinity in early 2015 as President and Chief Executive Officer, bringing with him a wealth of experience and a reputation as one of the leading developers in the country.

As a third generation developer, Fred most recently held the position of President and Chief Operating Officer at RioCan, where he gained national recognition for being an integral part of the team who transformed the company into the largest retail landlord in Canada. During his tenure, RioCan grew from $100 million to $15 billion in assets. His profile and expertise have made him a sought-after expert on real estate development with top tier Canadian business media. Previously Fred was Chairman of the European Commercial Real Estate Investment Trust and Vice-Chair of Extendicare.
