About

Professional Summary

As executive managing director of Integrated Client Services for the Southwest Region of Corporate Solutions, I have specialized in transaction and corporate real estate portfolio account management on both a national and global level for tenants and corporate end users since joining Colliers International in 1988. 

I play a key role in managing the team’s daily operations, involving tenant representation, transaction management, portfolio management, consulting and related advisory services. My experience and extensive market knowledge allow me to deliver the highest level of service to clients in all facets of their corporate real estate endeavors, which includes managing requirements for new locations, renewals and dispositions, as well as containment of overall real estate costs within client portfolios.

In an era where we are regularly being faced with new challenges in the real estate market, I proactively explore industry trends and market conditions from all angles to ensure my clients have the information needed to capture opportunities that will demonstrate value in their real estate projects and investments. I know how to improve risk-adjusted returns by managing operating costs and maximizing the client’s occupancy experience. 

In addition, I recognize that success in today’s dynamic marketplace takes additional steps in building relationships with clients by collaboratively creating strategic initiatives within the client’s portfolios, providing flexibility in obtaining the client’s financial objectives, and developing a full understanding of design and building requirements that align with the client’s business model.

As a Corporate Solutions expert, I become an integral and valued member of my clients’ real estate teams. I enhance a client’s ability to evaluate risks and rewards across a range of financing and investment options, improving capital allocation and portfolio management. My experience and impressive level of knowledge, service and responsiveness have allowed me to develop strong professional relationships with a multitude of global innovators, leaders and cites. Time and time again, I have demonstrated that interacting with my clients, establishing their trust, and adding value to their operations is what I most enjoy.
