During his time with Colliers, Peter has continued to be involved in major placemaking projects across the city, whilst providing trusted leasing and marketing advise on a number of high value office schemes for clients including Hermes Investment Management, Royal London Asset Management and Legal & General.

“Peter is a highly respected member of the Manchester business community and a trusted advisor to clients, having played instrumental roles in transformative projects that have helped shape Manchester into the truly cosmopolitan city it is today,” said Tony Horrell, CEO UK & Ireland, Colliers International. “From his involvement in rebuilding parts of Manchester after the 1996 bombing, through to his current work providing development, leasing and marketing advice on the major mixed-use redevelopment scheme, NOMA - his knowledge and understanding of the city and its players will be invaluable as he moves forward as our new head of the Manchester office.”

Peter added: “I am proud to be a part of the incredibly talented team of professionals we have working here in our Manchester office. Since joining Colliers five years ago, I have been impressed with the way in which our people are empowered to be masters of their own destiny. This entrepreneurial spirit garners a sense of pride through which employees have the freedom to be creative in the way that they respond to clients’ needs, allowing Colliers to offer something different from our competitors.

“It is exactly this ethos that I hope to encourage and promote as I embark on this new role as Head of Colliers’ Manchester office. I look forward to continuing to work in partnership with my fellow Manchester colleagues to nurture our emerging talent, embracing new technologies as we strive to provide the best possible service to our customers, whilst having a bit of fun along the way!”

Peter takes over from Andrew McFarlane who steps down following eight years as Colliers’ Manchester office head. Andrew continues on in his regional role at Colliers International.
