SAN JOSE, July 31, 2015 – Colliers International today announced the opening of a new Silicon Valley office in Mountain View, California. The new Mountain View presence will be anchored by four of the firm's top brokers: Romy Zeid, Paul McManus, Brett Taylor, and Kyle Portal. Formerly located in the San Jose office, the team will extend Colliers' full-service professional services platform in the area, offering all lines of commercial brokerage and consultation.

"The team for this office was a natural selection." said Jeff Fredericks, Executive Managing Director of Colliers in San Jose. "Their experience and dedication will undoubtedly facilitate the growth of the Mountain View office into one of the most competitive in the market and makes them a perfect fit for the entrepreneurial culture at Colliers. They'll be great representatives of the brand in Mountain View.' Fredericks added that "Opening the Mountain View office gives us more room for key recruits in San Jose and in Mountain View. With all the consolidation in the industry, we think this is a great time for recruiting to a company like ours, and now we have the necessary space. Colliers Silicon Valley is unique in that we have unparalleled global reach to service our customers, yet we retain local control, as well as our own culture and ownership. These are the same characters that are attractive to bright, successful, entrepreneurial people in our business."

'The Colliers Mountain View office further enhances the presence of the company in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area,' explained Romy Zeid. 'Mountain View is one of the most desirable commercial real estate markets in the region for tenants, landlords, and developers. Opening a new office in the city allows us to provide an increased level of service to our clients. We are excited to be part of such an exceptional organization and its continued growth'.

With the addition of the Mountain View office, Colliers International now has nine offices in the Bay Area, with more than 150 commercial real estate consultants and over 180 total professionals. Globally the firm has more than 16,300 professionals operating from 502 offices in 67 countries. The San Jose and Redwood City offices have robust capabilities in both research and marketing and will support the Mountain View office during their initial ramp up.
