Director of Operations
As Director of Operations for Real Estate Management Services in the Portland, Oregon branch of Colliers International, I am responsible for providing oversight and market positioning of our 8.5 million square feet of real estate assets and leadership for our 13 staff members.
I repeatedly earn the trust of my clients, investors, tenants and contractors through delivery of exceptional customer service, clear communication, reliable follow through, accurate and detailed financial reporting and the high degree of care with which I work.
I am experienced at managing all Class-A asset types from high-rise office buildings to retail shopping centers and industrial complexes. My tenant mix has included investment grade accounting and finance firms such as PriceWaterHouseCoopers, Moss Adams, Morgan Stanley and UBS; national retailers such as Petsmart, Target and Costco; manufacturing and distribution tenants such as Danner, Vistar and Samuel & Co. and creative office users including AirBnB, Pollinate Media Group and YBA Architects.
In additional to day to day management, my competency extends to project management, pre-acquisition analysis and asset disposition.
I genuinely enjoy serving my clients and building long-lasting relationships with them, with my tenants and with my internal teammates. I love what I do - and it shows!
