Professional Summary


With more than 17 years of experience in providing clients with industrial real estate strategies, I have become a leader in the industry and have often been quoted in local and regional publications as a market expert. Consistently a top producer in the Grand Rapids and West Michigan markets, I am the Executive Vice President and Designated Broker of Colliers International | West Michigan.

I have been involved in MCA’s corporate solution transactions in a number of states, as well as in Canada and Mexico.

I quickly understand complex situations, which allows me to maximize potential outcomes for my clients. My extensive knowledge of the industrial marketplace, and the business relationships I have developed across North America have allowed me to close more than $750,000,000 in transactions, representing more than 17,500,000 square feet.
