Strengthening hold on the World’s Largest Potential Industrial and Logistics Market
10 June 2014
Colliers International today announced the appointment of Tammy Tang as Executive Director of Industrial Services, China. This strategic hire echoes the leading global commercial real estate company’s drive to strengthen their hold on the world’s largest potential industrial market and bolster their foremost position in Asia’s industrial services sector.
In her new position, Tammy will lead Colliers’ China-based industrial services team, and help expand their service and geographical coverage to industrial clients. Beyond their existing service platform that includes tenant and landlord representation and investment advisory, she will establish a new advisory team in Shanghai and grow the project marketing capabilities – new offerings that will further establish Colliers as China’s leading real estate firm.
“Having Tammy on board is exciting news,” says Piers Brunner, CEO of Colliers International, Asia. “With her expertise in the industrial real estate market and deeply established network of client and government relationships, we are confident Tammy will lead the team as top player in China’s industrial real estate market.”
Tammy’s appointment follows several big moves by Colliers within Asia’s industrial services sector. The formation of dedicated teams such as the specialised Logistics, Warehouse and Transportation group led out of Singapore, demonstrates Colliers’ decision to focus their resources on this increasingly complex sector.
“Tammy’s leadership will greatly amplify our ability to provide enhanced services to a larger number of clients,” says Brunner. “She can harness the wisdom of Asia’s established Industrial Services teams, and collaborate for better results.”
Tammy has been in China’s real estate industry for more than 17 years. Her diverse background includes development consultancy, investment, leasing, and marketing in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Previously a National Director, Head of Industrial, and Head of Business Parks and Consultancy at JLL, Tammy has handled a variety of significant landlord and tenant representation projects and countless advisory projects in more than 20 cities across China.
“Positioning is key to our success. We now have strong leaders in the biggest growth markets, and highly specialised teams in place to better meet our clients’ evolving needs,” Brunner commented.
