About

Professional Summary

Global clients rely on me to help them navigate through the unique decision-making cycle faced when seeking real estate solutions. As an executive vice president with Colliers International’s Industrial Advisory Group, I have been active in commercial real estate for more than 30 years. I am one of Colliers Chicago’s leading experts on build-to-suits and have been a part of some of the area’s most notable transactions. 

I draw on my experience both working for and with Japanese companies. I worked within the machine tools industry while living in Japan. In addition, I worked for the Chicago branch of Mitsubishi International Corporation. Drawing on my 10 years’ experience within the construction industry, my clients benefit from my inside expertise and deep understanding of the construction process. In addition, I have a first-hand understanding of the decision-making process and culture of international clients.

Prior to joining Colliers, I directed TOBI International Corporation, a full service commercial real estate company delivering strategic real estate solutions to the global market. My collaborative approach and expertise enabled TOBI to secure preferred vendor status and repeat business with multinational corporations.

I began my real estate career at Colliers International, where I spearheaded the firm’s expansion into Japanese investment in North America. Prior to Colliers, I engaged in international trade for 10 years on behalf of Mitsubishi International.
