Meet Our Experts

I started in private practice over 25 years ago working with a large London based practice advising on the Industrial & Logistic sector.  In 2003 I moved to a small specialist practice to advise a range of clients on most aspects of the real estate sector. 

I then joined Colliers International in 2006 to focus on the Industrial & Logistics and Technology and Data Centre Sectors. 

I am part of the Colliers Data Centre Team in the UK, along with the Colliers Technology Solutions Group Steering Committee, a specialist practice group and liaise closely with Colliers brokers globally.

Accomplishments

In the Industrial & Logistics sector I have worked closely with occupiers particularly those involved in the delivery of multiple premises across the UK. One particular client, I have advised  since 2006 on the expansion of their branch network, taking it from approximately 30 units to over 400 with a current expansion rate of over 60 new units a year. In each case strategies have been developed and implemented to meet both the client's immediate and long term liabilities.

In the technology & data centre sectors I have developed strategies for clients including:

 - Lease Acquisition & Benchmarking
   Including colocation from rack to wholesale
 - Cloud Advisory
   Including reviewing the options
 - Investment Advice
   Including sale & leaseback
 - Site Acquisition & Development Advice
   Including due diligence
