Managing Director, Operations
As a senior vice president and operations leader for the Colliers International | Chicago property management division, I coordinate client management services and serve as a high-level support to our clients’ asset management functions in conjunction with our leasing and investment sales group. I also focus on design and integration of systems, processes and standards including accounting, human resources and information technology systems.
I am an active member of the Colliers International Leadership Committee, working to continually improve the performance of the entire management organization located throughout the United States.
Prior to joining Colliers International, I worked as the vice president of operations for ING Clarion Realty Services for nine years, overseeing Midwest Operations for office, retail and industrial portfolio in excess of 4 million square feet. My portfolio included 600 N. Michigan Avenue; Magnificent Mile Retail Center; The Rookery, a Chicago historical landmark; and an industrial portfolio in the Chicago and Milwaukee markets. My oversight included daily operations, appraisal/valuation data related to assets, performing due diligence, reviewing revenue and expense stream, performing cash flow analysis, physical property inspections, and lease review and tenant interviews.
I have significant experience in strategic planning, evaluating, and implementing new technology systems and software. My key initiatives included streamlining of business plans, budgets, lease review process and negotiating national contracts. I have also created and implemented national training programs, trained personnel in systems internally and externally, troubleshot assets, and determined feasibility of maintaining internal systems or outsourcing services.
I also worked for US Equities in various management roles with involvement in significant Midwestern properties, including Woodfield Corporate Center and the John Hancock Center.
