St. Louis, December 8, 2017  – Leading global commercial real estate services firm Colliers International Group Inc. (NASDAQ:CIGI, TSX:CIG) recently named Joseph McGauley, SIOR, CRE as an executive vice president in its St. Louis office. McGauley, 58, has worked in the commercial real estate industry for nearly 36 years, beginning in 1982.

Focused on corporate services, McGauley’s expertise is managing large, international real estate portfolios. Having represented companies from family sized to multi-national corporations, he has completed numerous transactions with an aggregate value of over $1 billion.

“As a business real estate advisor, my strategic approach provides clients with more organization, cost savings and an overall understanding of how real estate can add value to their respective businesses,” he says. “I look forward to sharing my expertise with the Colliers team and clientele.”

Prior to joining Colliers International, McGauley was president of Gershman Commercial Equities, a private real estate investment group that began in 2015. Before this, he was a founding member of Gateway Commercial in St. Louis. Gateway was the alliance successor of Cushman & Wakefield’s local branch, which McGauley opened back in 1989.

“Colliers is thrilled to have such a well-respected advisor in St. Louis joining our team”, says Gallagher. “He represents some of the most prominent owners and occupiers in the region, and I have no doubt he will make an immediate and positive contribution to our team. To a large degree, Joe is coming home, because our firm still reflects the culture of excellence he established back in 1989.”
