Professional Summary

As Executive Managing Director of Colliers International’s Silicon Valley office, my role is to oversee and continually diversify the Colliers presence within the Silicon Valley, one of the most strategically important markets in the world.  I work closely with the 80 brokers in our office to optimize the brokerage services we provide to our investor, owner, and occupier clients.   

I enjoy my work very much, and deeply value the trust our clients put in us to solve their real estate challenges.  At Colliers, I work with many of the most established brokers in our region, as well as newer brokers as they develop their careers.  It gives me great pride to know that all our agents can rely on me to help them continue to be successful.  I believe the Colliers entrepreneurial culture serves clients well because it fosters a client-focused initiative very similar to the enterprising energy that our clients put into their own businesses. 

I joined Colliers in May 2018, bringing with me over 36 years of commercial real estate experience.     Immediately prior to joining Colliers, I worked at Kidder Mathews as the Executive Vice President overseeing brokerage services for Northern California and Nevada.  Before Kidder Mathews I ran the CBRE Silicon Valley Private Client group.  I began my brokerage career two weeks after graduating from CAL Berkeley with Coldwell Banker (now CBRE) as an Industrial salesman in their Oakland office.  Over the years, I have handled over $1.1 billion in Sales and Lease transactions in the office, R&D, industrial and retail sectors.  Additionally, I have held numerous management and senior management positions with CBRE, Transpacific Development Company, Insignia ESG and Kidder Mathews.

I live in Menlo Park with my wife of 30 years, Anne Kerwin Payne.  Our children Weston and Madelyn are now raised.  In my spare time, I love to play golf, ski, and hike.  Anne and I support a number of community organizations, especially the Bay Area Women’s Sports Initiative (BAWSI) and CAL Athletics.  I also serve on the board of the Silicon Valley Brokers Association and am an active SIOR.
