Property Manager | Ciudad de México
I have been working for over 10 years now. Most of my previous experience is related to Business Development and Business Management. Some of the industries I worked in are: Transportation, Agriculture, Banking & Financial Services, Real Estate and most recently International Commerce.
To narrow a little bit on my Real Estate experience, I used to work for Macquarie Group, more specifically for one of its subsidiaries called MMREIT Property Administration based in Mexico City. It was the name of the company that managed all the industrial properties in its portfolio, over 260 all over the country.
I began working as a Property Manager and ended as a Leasing Administrator. I used to coordinate the Leasing Team formed by the 6 regional managers.
After some time I moved temporarily to London, UK where I worked for a Mexican Government Agency called ProMexico. My main responsibilities involved promoting Mexican Companies in the UK by increasing their exports to the British Market.
Now that I returned to the Real Estate sector in Mexico, I am very pleased to be working for Colliers International as a Property Manager.
