Bruce Weinberg


Executive Managing Director

About

Professional Summary

I am an Executive Managing Director in Colliers International’s New York office. While my main focus is tenant representation throughout the New York Region, I also work with owners of troubled assets to develop successful results for those properties. I joined Colliers in 2015.

I am a multifaceted advisor whose real estate practice centers on honesty, integrity and a dedication to client success. I entered the real estate business after an auditing, reporting and strategy-focused position at a Big 5 public accounting firm followed by a career at consumer products companies. Through that, I clarified my interest in both the decision-making and real estate processes that organizations employ to arrive at best-practice decisions. Clients say I use my financial background, understanding of tax/book issues, organizational and team-building skills, and patience and persistence to create consensus. They appreciate my ability to simplify the complexities of the transaction process, help them understand the market and their opportunities, and measure the impact of decisions on their business operations.

 

Accomplishments

Over the course of my career, I have completed more than 11 million square feet of transactions worldwide valued at $2.4 billion. I have helped private and publicly held organizations navigate the market and develop solutions that strengthen brand identity, contribute to successful talent acquisition, and align real estate with the goals and aspirations of diverse organizations. I have also orchestrated innovative marketing strategies that reduced vacancies in portfolios controlled by institutions, REITs, investors and other owners of office properties throughout New York City.

Mitsui & Co. (USA) has trusted me as its exclusive broker for almost three decades. During that time, I negotiated numerous transactions across the United States, including the company’s U.S. headquarters three times. I have worked with and earned the trust of eight different senior leaders at Mitsui over the course of that relationship.

Other clients I have served include Bergdorf Goodman, Brooks Brothers, General Electric, Neuberger Berman, Pfizer, Inc., Toyota, NBCUniversal and Zurich Financial. Owners I represented as agent include Solow Building Company, the Milstein family, and Cres, Inc., for which I stabilized 192 Lexington Avenue, ensuring dependable income for my elderly client.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was an Executive Managing Director at Cushman & Wakefield, where I played a pivotal role in mentoring young professionals. Earlier, I worked in leadership and brokerage roles at CBRE for 19 years.
