Professional Summary

I am a Partner in the Occupier Services Bay Area (OSBA), a Colliers group that exclusively represents tenants. I formerly was the Co-Chairman of Colliers International Partnership from 2005-2007 and a Director from 2004 to 2007.

My broad understanding of the impact of varying real estate structures on the financial statements of clients help me successfully guide tenants through the process. I spent four years in Public Accounting with Deloitte Haskins & Sells (now commonly known as Deloitte). In 1989, I founded the Corporate Advisory Group in San Francisco where I used my background in Accounting and Real Estate simultaneously to benefit the tenants our group represent. I moved to the Silicon Valley Office of Colliers International in 1993 and then to the San Francisco Peninsula Office since it opened in 2012. Today, the Occupier Services Bay Area (OSBA) manages a variety of large tenant portfolios of companies such as Oracle, LinkedIn, Adobe, Nvidia, Autodesk, Slack, Splunk, and more listed on the following pages. 

My 30+ years of experience includes financial analysis, national and regional location analysis, site selection, facilities and long range planning, transaction structuring, off book financing, and financial statement impact analysis.
