Matthew Long is to join Colliers International as a Director in its National Offices team, based in Birmingham.

Matthew joins after 15 years at DTZ, where he was Associate Director in its Birmingham office. At Colliers, he will continue to advise institutions, landlords and developers in Birmingham, leading office agency instructions including Brindleyplace for Moorfield and Hines; and Colmore Row for Sterling Property Ventures.

Mark Taylor, Head of National Offices, Colliers International said: “Matthew’s appointment has been driven by client demand in the Midlands. It’s recognition that today’s market requires experienced agents with expert knowledge - Colliers has positioned itself to give that level of service across all lines of our client base."

Matthew has been involved in a number of large deals across the region, including DCLG at The Axis in Birmingham city centre and a 65,000 sq ft letting to Virgin Media at Eagle Court.

Matthew’s appointment follows the recent news of Mark Emburey re-joining Colliers International’s National Offices team in April from CBRE, where he was a Senior Director in South East Office Agency.
