I relocated to the Czech Republic from the UK in 2005, since then  I have  provided building  consultancy services in the Czech  Republic and across the  Central and Eastern Europe  Region.

I joined Colliers in Prague 2013 to start up and manage their Building Consultancy department. So far we have gone from strength to strength,  increasing the department turnover by 50% each year by  successfully providing a range of services,  project and cost management and monitoring, building surveying and work place solutions. We  support our clients in a range of markets, office,  industrial and logistics and data centre to help them achieve their real estate goals.

Prior to Colliers I operated for 3  years as an independant project and cost management consultant servicing clients in both the Czech Republic  and Slovakia.

When I moved to the Czech Republic I joined EC Harris (now Arcadis) where I worked for 4 years as a project manager. I was responsible for the successful delivery of a range of different  projects and services,  I was also their  Corporate Real Estate Service Delivery Leader  for Central Europe. 

My UK  7 years construction management experience was mainly focused on the Central London comercial refurbishment and fit out industry, delivering high  spec office, eductation and data centre projects to bluechip corporate clients.
