About

Professional Summary

I am an Executive Vice President and the Chief Operating Officer of Colliers International | South Carolina. I am also the market leader and Colliers Manager for the Columbia office. I have a great appreciation for business competition and I enjoy helping our team members win. This has been relevant in my career in brokerage activities with our clients and now with my approach to management. I enjoy seeing the success of people within Colliers who apply a strong work ethic and persevere to win assignments.

Accomplishments

I have always been a person who was involved. From my involvement in many organizations, and particularly REALTOR® organizations, I have been recognized numerous times for my service to the REALTORS®.

I obtained two professional designations: SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS®) and CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member). I wholeheartedly support professional designations and I encourage all commercial brokers to obtain the designation of their choice. I am a past Chairman of the Carolinas Chapter of SIOR. I have also been active within SIOR on a national level, having served on dozens of committees and task forces, and have held senior leadership positions, including the Board of Directors, on which I am currently serving.

I strongly believe that I have a duty to give back to the community that I live in and make an active effort to be involved in organizations about which I am passionate. I currently serve as a Commissioner to the South Carolina Real Estate Commission, representing the 2nd Congressional District. I am currently the Chair of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce.

Education:

I grew up in Charlotte, NC. I graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science degree and began my career by running the residential multiple listing service in Columbia.  Once I had a taste of real estate, I knew I wanted to become a commercial broker working on office towers. I had the great fortune of joining Colliers in 1986 as an Office Broker. Once there, I progressed from a Broker to managing the leasing division of Colliers and eventually being promoted to Chief Operating Officer and Market Leader.
