About

Professional Summary

I am a leader of the Chicago Corporate Solutions and Occupier Services practice group specializing in tenant representation and strategic real estate advisory services for Fortune 500 companies, middle market corporations, financial services companies, education companies and law firms. Clients have told me that my integrity and entrepreneurial energy is inspiring, which has helped my team grow and created lasting relationships.  

I earned the prestigious SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office Realtors) designation and adhere to its strict ethical standards. I  have been quoted for my industry expertise in The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, Crain’s Chicago Business, and by the industry’s leading information company Co-Star Group.

After college, I started my career as an economic development advisor for the State of Illinois and soon thereafter as a site selection consultant for Arthur Andersen.  From a young age though, my passion and interest has been real estate.  My dad wanted me to go to law school, but I chose a business path and accelerated my career at Kellogg getting my MBA while transitioning to tenant representation and corporate advisory real estate services at CBRE as an SVP and Cushman & Wakefield as an Executive Director before joining Colliers in 2008. 

My wife and I have three sons.
