I am the Chairman and CEO of Colliers International | Chicago and a member of the Colliers International U.S. Executive Leadership Team. My 38 years’ experience in the real estate industry have covered office, industrial and investment brokerage and industrial development.

I specialize in acquiring, developing and redeveloping industrial properties on behalf of our company’s principals, both individually and through joint ventures.
