New hires to focus on debt advisory, public sector and capital raising.

Colliers has significantly bolstered its National Capital Markets offering with the hiring of Amy Griffiths, Nick Haverly, Warren Leader and Chris Nash. 

Amy joined the team from EY where she was a director of Capital and Debt Advisory and has over 20 years’ experience in the finance sector as both a lender and advisor. At Colliers she is developing the Debt Advisory offering in London and focusing on providing funding advice and execution to clients.

Warren Leader has joined the team to focus on private clients and family offices and has over 25 years of experience in the real estate industry, working with numerous private investors on investment and development projects.

For the last five years Chris Nash has been at Azimuth Global Partners with a particular focus on Asian inbound investment alongside a number of significant deals and funding opportunities. Chris will bring his extensive experience in capital and equity raising, and fund and asset management to Colliers. 

John Knowles, head of National Capital Markets at Colliers, comments: “With the hires of Amy, Nick, Warren and Chris, we are continuing to build on our team of experts to create an offering that can add value for clients across the full spectrum of real estate. As investor behaviours change, our clients are increasingly looking for in depth sector excellence, as well as advice on financing, funding and development opportunities. By expanding our team we are able to respond to this ever growing demand and offer comprehensive solutions.”
