Professional Summary

Patrick A. Wilcox’s passions lie at the intersection of technology and real estate.  His 18-year career in both began in 2000 at Qwest Communications, working as a CLEC and web hosting roll-out representative tasked with taking market-share from Pacific Bell, Ameritech, SBC, BellSouth, and Verizon.  In 2002, he returned to graduate school at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School, where taught undergraduate students until 2006.  While at Syracuse he attended law school and was also elected 4 times as President of the University’s graduate students (GSO), which made him an ex officio member of the school’s Board of Trustees.  From that Board seat, he was introduced to the commercial real estate.  In 2007 he entered the commercial real estate brokerage business as an Associate with Newmark Knight Frank, before joining Colliers International in New York and New Jersey in 2010, where he became an early member of the nascent Technology Solutions Group.

Mr. Wilcox works with publicly traded and private corporations to analyze their data center-related spending, helps them devise strategies to optimize services and reduce costs, and then execute on those strategies through the negotiation of new contracts, recasting of existing ones, and disposition of redundant assets.  In his practice he performs acquisition and sourcing services, portfolio management and transaction services for data center and IT contracts, and the disposition of surplus mission critical real estate.  He is especially active with in the cybersecurity and blockchain sectors and continues to stay close to his telecom roots.   

Ever passionate about sustainability, he encourages corporations to adopt the "triple bottom line" of people, place, and planet, in both their data centers, offices, warehouses, and retail stores.  A member of the USGBC since 2010, he a LEED AP BD+C as well as a Data Center Certified Associate from Energy University by APC-Schneider Electric.  He is the 2015 recipient of the “Creative Deal of the Year Award” from Tulfra Real Estate for an adaptive reuse project that redeveloped a pharmaceutical manufacturing brownfield site that sat vacant for 15 years. In 2017, he was initiated into the Everest Club at Colliers International.   

Mr. Wilcox divides his time between Manhattan, Northern New Jersey, and Central New York with his wife and dogs.  He has never lost his love of learning and stays close to his alumni associations and Syracuse Basketball when not at work, or traveling to see Phish in concert, something he has done perennially for 25 years.
