About

Professional Summary

I am an Executive Vice President and the Chief Operating Officer of Colliers International | South Carolina. I am also the Market President and Manager for Colliers’ Columbia office. I have a great appreciation for business competition and 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. I possess a strong passion for helping our clients achieve their goals whether it is in leasing space or determining solutions to complicated real estate matters.

Accomplishments

I have always been a person who wanted to give back to the industry and my community. I have been recognized numerous times for my service to various REALTOR® associations. I am a past recipient of the SCRA REALTOR® of the Year Award, the CCRA REALTOR® of the Year Award, the President’s Excellence Program Award recipient and the Grassroots REALTOR® of the Year. I was the NAR 2013 Commercial Award Recipient. I have served as the President of CCRA (1,800 members) and SCRA (22,000 members).

I recently completed ten years serving on the Executive Committee of NAR. I previously served on NAR’s Finance and Investment Reserves committees. 

I have obtained three professional designations: SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS®), CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) and CRE (Counselor of Real Estate). 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 for several different terms.

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 the immediate past Chair of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce. I am also a member of the Clemson University Board of Visitors and serve on the Student Engagement Committee. 

Additionally, I recently served as the Chair of the Columbia City Center Partnership for the CBD Business Improvement District. I am also a past member of the Board of Directors of Friends of Juvenile Justice and a past Chair of the Board of Sandhills School.

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 to managing the leasing division of Colliers and was eventually promoted to Chief Operating Officer and Market President.
