Hong Kong SAR, 10 September 2021 – Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI) is pleased to announce its Annual Patron Sponsorship with the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Hong Kong.
This strategic partnership enables the business to have closer collaboration with a true industry-leading organisation. Renowned for pioneering thought leadership in the built environment, it positions Colliers at the forefront of important conversations around what trends are shaping Hong Kong’s real estate environment and how we can contribute to sustainable solutions.
This sponsorship also provides a strong platform to contribute to the body of research and thought leadership in Hong Kong. And there is important synergy with our core values and the ULI’s key initiatives, the ‘Young Leaders Group’ and the ‘Women’s Leadership Initiative’. As we work together, we will focus on leveraging these initiatives to nurture young emerging talent and support the important role of women in the built environment.
Nigel Smith, Managing Director of Colliers in Hong Kong, said: “We are delighted by this opportunity and look forward to engaging more closely with the ULI to lead our industry into the future. Our strategic sponsorship enables us to contribute and effect real change across some core areas that I am personally passionate about and have advocated for throughout my six years at Colliers; the development of emerging talent and supporting women to be successful in the real estate industry.”
Phil Kim, Chairman of ULI Hong Kong, added that: “We are delighted to welcome Colliers as one of our annual sponsors. There is an incredibly strong alignment between Colliers and the ULI’s commitment to be the leader in solving community and real estate challenges through applied collective global experience and philanthropic engagement.”
This announcement coincides with the recent appointment of Nigel Smith who is now a member of the ULI Hong Kong Executive Committee and Hannah Jeong who will continue her position as an active committee member of the ULI’s Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI).
The ULI is an international, membership-based nonprofit research and education organisation. Founded in 1936, ULI now has more than 45,000 members worldwide representing the entire spectrum of land use and real estate development disciplines, working in private enterprise and public service.
