About

Professional Summary

After relocating to Houston from Florida where I served as President of the Colliers offices in Tampa Bay, Orlando and Southwest Florida, I am the President of the Houston offices of Colliers International. 

Having over 34 years of experience in commercial real estate as a producing broker, educator, sales manager and managing broker, I enjoy assisting people with creating strategic and tactical plans leveraging my broad-based commercial brokerage background as a practitioner, manager and instructor.

I started my career as Director of Marketing for a real estate data base company where I spent three years interviewing top brokerage houses throughout the United States and assisted in their automation needs as a consultant and instructor.  As President of the Colliers Houston office, I have direct responsibility for recruiting, training and managing the sales and leasing teams, property management and business plan creation and coordination for the company.

Accomplishments

I am responsible for building and organizing retail service delivery capabilities for Colliers in North America as chairman of the Colliers Retail Specialty Group (96-2000, 2002-2013). I am also a founding member and currently Chair of the Colliers Oil and Gas practice group.  Among my academic accomplishments, I wrote the capstone case study for the CCIM program's final course offering from 1986 - 1998. The case study combined the marketing and financial concepts taught by CCIM to allow the students to apply the material to a simulated commercial property disposition.

I have been an instructor for Nacore's (now CORENET) Intermediate Finance Course and was awarded the Top Rated Faculty Certificate in 2000. I have been an expert panelist for NAIOP, Real Share, ICSC and many other real estate organizations and  regularly quoted in national and regional publications including the Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones, Newsweek, Real Estate Forum, National Real Estate Investor, Globe Street and others. 

I have served as a member and chairman of the Colliers Managers Steering committee, on the Board of Directors for Colliers USA and an  immediate past Chairman (2015-2017) of the Colliers USA Board of Advisors.   In 2003, I was awarded Colliers Manager of the Year. In 2004, I was chosen by Colliers International as the Tom Richardson Award recipient, an honor based on strength of character and  was chosen as the recipient of the Colliers USA Pinnacle Award for service excellence in 2012. Apart from being the only person in Colliers to win all three of these awards,  I was named a "Best Boss" by Real Estate Forum Magazine in 2017.
