Montreal is a favorite destination for visitors who enjoy its combination of old-world charm, surrounding natural beauty, and upscale shopping areas. The city is also attracting new residents who are drawn to a series of elegant condominium projects built by the Brivia Group, a real estate development firm. Buyers are enticed by the buildings’ quality, amenities, and luxury. Brivia’s Kheng Ly is its founder and known for his impressive background, stunning rise in the business world and outstanding leadership.
Humble Beginnings Spurred an Adventurous Spirit
Even among all the impressive rags-to-riches stories in the business world, Kheng Ly’s history stands out. Born in Cambodia in 1971, he and his family survived the dangers of the country’s lethal political climate. Eventually fleeing to Vietnam, they lived in a refugee camp where the future business magnate met the girl who would become his wife. The family fled to Montreal and Kheng Ly began working long hours at a series of minimum wage jobs.
Montreal Became a Launching Pad for Success
Even at the young age of 17, Kheng Ly was driven to begin his first business, a textile company. However, he soon realized the possibilities available in real estate and began investing. Within a few years, he had gained the experience to take on several development projects. With a new team and several projects under his belt, the business leader formed the Brivia Group. The company went on to spearhead development of Montreal’s dazzling YUL condominium project, located in the heart of the city’s most prestigious business, entertainment, and shopping center.
Strong Principles Guide Continued Progress
As head of Brivia Group, Kheng Ly is noted as much for his principles as his vision and hard work. He has been recognized for his philanthropy and contributions to the community. His leadership style includes a commitment to transparency, honesty, perseverance, and resilience. His projects are celebrated for their quality and elegance.
