About

Professional Summary

Serving dual roles for Colliers as vice president, account management for the Americas, and as senior vice president for Colliers in Greater Phoenix, I specialize in corporate solutions, including portfolio management, corporate real estate and workplace strategy, working on behalf of clients with significant domestic and global real estate assets. Areas of expertise include strategic planning, transaction implementation, site selection, lease administration, and project and portfolio management.

With more than 25 years of in-depth experience in corporate real estate, I have completed transactions in excess of 10 million square feet in more than 100 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Partnering with Phil Breidenbach, SIOR, executive vice president; and Kyle York, associate, our team provides exceptional service and strategic solutions to our clients, representing buyers, tenants, owners and landlords. Sarah Stecko, senior client services specialist, coordinates the team’s transactional administration and marketing services.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was a principal with Cresa Phoenix for seven years, specializing in corporate real estate. Previously, I managed the corporate real estate portfolio for First Health Group based in Scottsdale for 13 years. The portfolio consisted of more than 2.7 million square feet with an annual operating budget of $33 million.
