About

Professional Summary

Companies across the U.S. rely on me in the real estate side of their supply chain, where I assist them with the acquisition of ‘mission-critical’ distribution facilities. I also work on industrial real estate projects in the greater Chicago area – specifically along the I-55, I-80, and I-88 Corridors – representing tenants, as well as developers and property owners, in the sale leasing of industrial real estate facilities. 

At Colliers International, I am a senior vice president within the Industrial Advisory Group and a founding member of the Colliers Logistics and Transportation Solutions Group.  

With more than 20 years of experience, I am highly-skilled in all facets of the corporate real estate process. I have been nicknamed “The Elephant Killer” by my peers, a reference to my ability to complete very large and challenging transactions. 

I have worked with the Illinois Office of Real Estate Research on valuation projects, and my articles and columns are regularly published in academic and trade journals.

Prior to joining Colliers in 1997, I was president of my family real estate firm in downstate Illinois.

Accomplishments

I completed one of the largest industrial real estate transactions in North America; the sale of a 1,546,872 square-foot modern distribution center in Manteno, IL to Kmart Corporation (2003).
