Senior Vice President
I have been involved in some of the Midwest’s largest retail projects, bringing more than 35 years of experience and national-level retail contacts to the Colliers International | West Michigan team. I am well-known for my expertise and attention to detail in retail and tenant site location. Most notably, I am known for my work in consulting local communities on their location of retail properties. I also frequently assist clients by lending my knowledge in marketing.
Prior to joining Colliers, I served as the president of Visser Development, Inc., for 16 years. While at Visser, I was responsible for the development, management, leasing, and sale of numerous West Michigan strip centers and enclosed malls.
Before Visser, I spent seven years in marketing and management at The Taubman Centers, Inc. - an international developer of regional malls.
My early years at Taubman prepared me for my success as a major retail broker by providing me with the management skills needed to oversee large transactions and the creativity to develop creative retail, real estate solutions.
