Director of Valuation and Advisory Services
Joined Colliers in May 2016 as Joint Head of Portfolio Valuations within the Valuation & Advisory Services Team. I joined from Savills where I had spent 2 years carrying out a similar role . Prior to that, I was Head of Portfolio Valuations at GVA Grimley, a team that I had set up 10 years earlier. Started my career post university at Knight Frank where I completed my professional training and worked for 10 years.
At GVA, Mark successfully set up a Portfolio Valuation team, in tough market conditions that had over 25 funds under regular valuations mandates by the time he left 10 years later. In his time here, at a firm level, Mark was also involved in many cross department committees with the aim of grewing GVA's market share. Mark used these skills at his time at Savills helping grow the turnover of the portfolio valuation team as well as supporting the bank lending team.
Some of Mark's most notable valuations include: leading the MEPC Business Space Portfolio & Land Securitess Industial Portfolios whilst at Knight Frank; The MOD Overseas Estate, Royal Bank of Scotlands Occupational Portfolio, The BBC Pension Fund Portfolio, Strathclyde County Council Portfolio & a number of highly active value add funds for the like of CBRE GI, Mayfair Capital and Palmer Capital whilst at GVA and Sun Life of Canada, West Sussex County Council, Redefine PLC & Circle Property, including their Stock Exchange Listing whilst at Savills.

'Mark valued two commercial property funds for us the first of which was relatively dry, income producing stock and the second targets investments where there are opportunities to enhance capital value through active management. In both exercises we have found him and his team exceptionally able and, crucially, both accessible and responsive when dealing with the pressures of a challenging market. The teams professionalism and efforsts in understanding our commercial objectives for each property have been an integral part of the success of this fund. I would add that in our view the effectiveness of Mark's insight extends well beyond simply the provision of valuation advice and that of a sounding board, his contribution in recent years has proved Invaluable.'
