About

Professional Summary

RESPONSIBILITIES
I am a Senior Director with Colliers International l Norfolk, Virginia office, specializing in Industrial Brokerage.  With over twenty (20) years of experience in port/maritime industry, my previous job experience with the Virginia Port Authority marketing port, warehouse, distribution, manufacturing, and waterfront industrial opportunities at the Port of Virginia as well as the inland port at Front Royal, VA gives me a unique understanding of the Hampton Roads marketplace. My focus is in industrial sales, leasing, acquisitions, dispositions and site selection services for a variety of local and regional clients.

EXPERIENCE
I moved to Virginia in 1997 from Baltimore, Maryland to work for a liquid bulk import/export transfer company.  This terminal operations experience connected me with the maritime community on the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River as well as the international shipping community.  Interacting with freight forwarders, custom house brokers, pilots, coast guard, ship agents, railroads, and the port, I have established extensive contacts throughout the global shipping community.

In 2001, I took a position with the Virginia Port Authority as part of the Business Analysis and Strategy Team.    After five years developing growth strategies for the port, I was placed in a   Economic Development role, specifically to work with waterfront industrial opportunities.  When the port closed Portsmouth Marine Terminal in 2010, I was tasked with identifying opportunities to expand the container and break bulk portfolio of the port to include bulk and manufacturing opportunities that could capitalize on the deep draft and dual class I rail access.  Through this maritime experience, I was able to identify potential interested users leading to comprehensive feasibility studies of terminal developments for industries including: paper, aggregates, sulfur, grain, wood pellet, plastic pellets, cold storage, bulk liquid, and automotive processing.
