Colliers has strengthened its National Capital Markets team with the hiring of Richard Harris and Mike Gorman.
Richard Harris joins as Head of Healthcare Investment from BNP Paribas Real Estate where he was Head of Alternatives. Prior to this, Richard was Managing Director at Vector Property Consultants, a specialist healthcare investment advisory business and has spent his career building a significant presence in the sector. With over 20 years’ experience in the real estate industry Richard will help bolster Colliers’ presence in the healthcare market, and more widely work within the firm’s new operational markets offering.
In Leeds, Mike Gorman joins the National Capital Markets team as a director. Mike joins from CBRE and has an impressive 20 years’ experience in the market having focused on multiple areas in the north including Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Newcastle. Prior to this Mike was a Partner at Knight Frank working in residential capital markets in the North. In his new role at Colliers, he will be concentrating on residential investment and development and will be responsible for enhancing Colliers’ overall offering in the sector. Mike’s hire reflects the growing range of client requirements across the spectrum from developers with sites, build to rent and build to sale schemes, and the development of platforms and standing investments.
Paddy Allen, head of Operational Capital Markets at Colliers, comments: “We are thrilled to welcome two new additions to the team. With the hires of Richard and Mike, we are continuing to grow our team of experts in response to the shift in clients’ needs that we have witnessed over the last 18 months, and in the ever-changing UK investment market. Over the last five years we have seen a real increase in investors pursuing ‘beds’ in real estate as the sector moves firmly away from being labelled ‘alternative’. With their experience incorporated to the team, 2022 is set to be an exciting year for not only Richard and Mike at Colliers, but for our new operational markets offering as we continue to drive real value for our clients.”
