Sheila Botting

Sheila is partner and Canadian real estate and construction leader, and a member of Deloitte’s Global Real Estate & Construction Executive. She is responsible for Deloitte’s full service offering to the real estate industry, and real estate services for other clients, which includes some 600 employees operating across 56 Canadian markets.

Over the past 25 years, Sheila has been involved in significant real estate advisory services, providing expertise to corporations, government, real estate companies, investors, pension funds and others.

Renowned for her knowledge and expertise in commercial real estate, she has worked with many clients in the public and private sector across Canada and around the globe. Sheila led Deloitte’s own corporate real estate strategy and implementation program across Canada including the almost two million sf portfolio consisting of Toronto’s Bay Adelaide East tower, Montreal’s Deloitte Tower and others in St John’s; Sherbrooke, Quebec; Ottawa; Winnipeg; Regina; Calgary and Langley, B.C.

Her vision and expertise have helped Deloitte to transform its “Workplace of the Future,” resulting in significant workplace improvements, productivity gains and cost savings. In 2016, Toronto Life named the new Deloitte Tower the “best new office workplace.” As a result, many clients have engaged Sheila and her team to transform their own offices and investigate the corporate real estate operating models.

Prior to joining Deloitte, Sheila was the executive managing director of Cushman & Wakefield, a leading full services professional firm, and she also was on the global leadership team for the advisory practice.

Sheila is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (FRICS), a Fellow of the Institute of Management Consultants (FCMC), and an Honorary Accredited Appraiser with the Appraisal Institute of Canada (AACI). She is a graduate of the University of Waterloo’s School of Environmental Studies (MA) and a participant in the Pragma Council of the School of Urban and Regional Planning.

Sheila routinely speaks about the commercial real estate industry to a wide range of industry associations and organizations.
