Head of Research and Economics
Research and Forecasting
London - West End
I am the the Chief Economist at global property advisors Colliers International based in London. I am a research economist identifying timely research topics and directing research and forecasting outputs.
I have over 20 years UK and European property industry experience and extensive expertise across a wide range of property sectors and related industries.
I participate regularly in industry panel discussions, but am focused more on direct client engagement with institutions, property companies, banks, and private investors. A regular media commentator, I have a wide range of national and broadcast experience.
I joined Colliers International in August 2007 after several years at a private property company where he was responsible for managing a mixed portfolio of London residential, retail and office assets.
Previously, I worked in a few London property advisory firms, a geodemographic company as well as a few youthful sojourns in the US offshore oil industry, local government and entertainment business.
I am an economics graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and received his PhD from the Faculty of Science at University College London. I am a member of Lambda Alpha International and the Society of Property Researchers.
Perhaps best known for my alternative take on property economics and investment, I am a keen proponent of UK regional development and infrastructure investment.
National Capital Markets
I am an experienced Director working closely with my capital market colleagues throughout Colliers UK. I have a proven track record of deal delivery which includes some of Scotlands most high profile commercial property transactions.
I actively advise clients on property investment acquistions and disposals throughout the country and across the UK.
