Trent Praski - Managing Director

Urban Edge Investments has been involved in real estate since 2001. It's primary focus is on the creation of infill family friendly townhouses, also known as "Missing Middle" housing. The company recently marked a significant milestone with the commencement of its 20th project across Western Canada. Urban Edge's diverse experience extends beyond townhouse development to encompass new single-family homes, condominium conversions, and land redevelopment.

In his role as Managing Director, Trent Praski has played a pivotal role in spearheading all of these projects. Trent earned his MBA in 2001 with a focus on Marketing and International Business. As part of his business education, he studied at the Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden and participated in an international consulting project in Ukraine. Following the completion of his MBA, Trent gained valuable experience in Management Consulting as a Senior Associate, specializing in Business Systems Analysis, with several multinational corporations, including American Airlines, Shell Oil, Aon, and West Jet. Subsequently, he held positions at Novartis Pharmaceuticals and Johnson & Johnson from 2002 to 2006.

 

Trent became a licensed realtor in 2012 and has taken several real estate investment and development courses through the University of Calgary, University of British Colombia and Langara College. He is currently licensed as a Real Estate Advisor with Macdonald Realty Ltd. 

Prior to completing his MBA, Trent completed a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education. His teaching experience took him to South Korea where he taught English as a Second Language and New Zealand where he taught grades 4 through 6.
