Audience_Clapping

15-Year CRE Veteran an Industry Innovator and Community Champion

In a testament to his excellence in serving the industrial community’s real estate needs across western Washington, Colliers International’s Matt McGregor won the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR) 2019 Industrial Broker of the Year award for Washington State at this year’s NAIOP Night of the Stars event in Seattle.

Over the past year, McGregor closed a number of the largest industrial transactions in the Puget Sound region. Among his most notable were Best Buy Warehousing Logistics’ build-to-suit distribution and fulfillment center in Fredrickson, WA and multiple, simultaneous transactions for Port Logistics Group in Sumner. These accomplishments helped make McGregor one of the highest-producing brokers at Colliers both in western Washington and across the United States.

Bill Condon, Executive Vice President & Managing Director of Colliers’ Seattle office, commented that “Matt has always been an original thinker, someone seeking to break with tradition, embrace new ideas and innovation, and leverage technology in unexpected and unusual ways. Every day, he tasks himself and his colleagues with challenging the norm, pushing them out of their comfort zone to inject every action with fresh perspective. Matt constantly creates discussion, raising the bar and setting the standard for business development and client service for industrial tenants and owners in the Puget Sound, state of Washington and markets across the U.S.”

Matt is also committed to giving back to the community and world we live in, and has devoted countless hours, financial support and intellectual capital to important causes, cultural institutions, the environment, and the less fortunate. From 2014 to 2019, he has served as a board member for a conglomerate of charitable and non-profit ministries with a global focus. McGregor is also a former board member of Union Gospel Mission, which serves, rescues and transforms those in need through 13 recovery facilities in greater Seattle. He has led community groups and takes part in numerous activities for his church, Westside Church of Seattle, and gives to the world through WorldComp, a charity that moves people out of poverty and devastation in Kenya.
