Senior Consultant Hotels
After working in the real estate industry on the investment side for 4 years, I started with Colliers in November 2018. I am a senior consultant on the Hotel team. I advise real estate developers and investors in lease transactions and hotel sales and purchases. The projects I work on vary between trading hotels, hotel developments and transformation projects. Besides selecting the right candidates and coordinating the transaction, I also perform feasibility studies. By analyzing the local hotel market and project specifications, I determine which hotel concepts best suit the project. The feasibility is concluded with a ‘brokers opinion of value’ which is always based on a profit-and-loss forecast for the future hotel.
After obtaining my engineering degree from the Technological University in Delft, I started my career at CBRE Global Investors as a management trainee. I later joined the EMEA separate accounts team which was responsible for the management of a EUR 2 billion pan European portfolio. After two years with CBRE GI, I transferred to Orange Capital Partners to build a retail fund for the investor Goldman Sachs. After the successful acquisition of several retail portfolios throughout the Netherlands, I became a portfolio manager being responsible for a EUR 300 million residential portfolio for investor GIC.
The most significant sales transaction I coordinated in 2019 was the sale of a brown field development plot in the city centre of Amsterdam. The former hotel and surrounding residential units and the adjacent green field plot combined, will be transformed into a 5 star hotel. On behalf of our client, we sold this opportunity to a well-known hotel developer.
The most significant lease transaction I coordinated in 2019 was the lease of a monumental building in the city centre of Rotterdam. The building, which is currently in use as an office building and school, will be transformed to a hotel. After successfully leasing the property on behalf of our client, the construction works will commence in august 2020. The hotel, which will be branded as Motto by Hilton, is planned to be opened Q1 2022.
