A love story
The story of Prével is nothing short of a love story. Our greatest strength is our team of passionate, qualified professionals. In addition, we work with a solid network of partners in a collaboration based on confidence, complementary skills, and mutual respect.
A family affair
Over the last 40+ years, Prével has expanded into a tightly knit team—an accomplishment we are incredibly proud of. Laurence Vincent took over the role of co-president from her father and Prével founder Jacques Vincent on January 1, 2018. It’s a position she currently shares with Jonathan Sigler, who’s been in this role since 1994.
Our team is made up of employees from diverse backgrounds—people with warm and colourful personalities, epicureans at heart, who are devoted to enjoying all life has to offer. This philosophy is part of Prével’s very foundation, and it continues to drive our work and can be found in the way we carefully create each of our living spaces.
A sense of belonging
Our relaxed and inclusive work environment and shared values create a real sense of belonging at Prével. Working here is a welcoming and human experience each and every day.
Thanks to years of successful property-management experience, Jonathan Sigler and Laurence Vincent have come to share the same vision. Their goal is to build integrated living spaces where architectural design and urbanism meet, creating a positive influence in the neighbourhoods where they’re located.
