The Colliers International team has grown through the addition of three new members. Ermanno Boeris, a Director at the company, forecasts a further increase in the team’s numbers by year’s end. “Having a professional and deeply experienced team will allow us to fulfil the company’s vision, and meet our objective of offering clients the highest quality, most comprehensive services available.”

More expertise to benefit building owners

The Office Agency has been strengthened by the addition of Jozef Cino, a Senior Associate Landlord Representation Specialist. A prior Office Agency Consultant for Colliers in 2008, Jozef is coming to the company from Carlton Property, s.r.o., where he provided marketing and sales services and managed successful projects, including the lease of the well-known Carlton Savoy office complex. In his new role, Jozef will provide comprehensive consulting services to building owners, and represent them in tenant relations.

New professional services offered and managed by experienced professionals

Colliers looks for opportunities to provide clients with long-term benefits through the ever-evolving professional services they offer. For that reason, two new services now appear in the company’s portfolio. “Colliers ranks globally among the fastest growing companies in the field of commercial real estate, and Slovakia’s development is following the trend. Adding more highly trained professionals who can offer clients the services they need is a big part of our growth strategy,” Ermanno Boeris adds.

Colliers International will begin providing professional consulting for companies looking to  achieve higher efficiency and improve their employees’ workplace satisfaction. The Change Management process Colliers offers starts with an analysis of employees’ needs. The captured data is then transformed into a detailed plan and applied to increase productivity and decrease overall costs. Bringing a wealth of experience to the team, these projects will be managed by Katarína Držíková, the new Associate Director, Change Management & Communication.

Katarína worked for a number of years as the Communication & Sustainability Leader in Embraco. As WCM Corporate PD Leader she was responsible for the introduction, adjustment and management of internal and external communication processes, social responsibility projects, and other key initiatives.


Premium services crafted to serve developers

Marek Vrbovský is the new Director of Colliers International’s Asset Management/Developer Services division. In this role, Marek will manage all asset management activities, monitoring and fulfilling the financial and operational objectives of the company’s institutional and individual real estate owners. For more than 17 years, Marek worked for HB Reavis Group, where he held numerous management positions. As the Leasing Director, he led the strategic development of leasing activities in the field of retail and office premises, both in Slovakia and internationally. Marek graduated from the University of Economics in Bratislava.

Most RICS members in Slovakia

Colliers International remains committed to employing highly qualified team members, which is reflected in their support of continued learning and an increase in the number of qualifications consultants are required to have. Of all Slovakian consulting companies, Colliers currently employs the highest number of Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) professionals. ”RICS certification ensures that our team adheres to strict guidelines, and guarantees that our clients receive the most professional services possible. Requiring our consultants to be RICS-certified is a clear demonstration our commitment to meeting the rigorous standards expected from a publicly traded company,” E. Boeris adds.

As many as a third of all professionals in Slovakia with the RICS accreditation work at Colliers International, including Juraj Bielik and Peter Sobihard, Michaela Ochmanová (Chartered Commercial Property Surveyor), Martin Malovec, and Andrew Thompson (Chartered Valuation Surveyors).
