Meet our Experts | Chris Pilgrim, Managing Director, Capital Markets & Investment Services for Asia Pacific

A Capital Markets expert passionate about collaboration, creativity and clients. Experts choose experts like Chris.


Why do you work at Colliers?

I work at Colliers because of our culture. We’re entrepreneurial and we’re global leaders in driving the real estate profession forward in markets, sectors, technology and people. In my view, we’re genuinely one of only three truly global real estate organisations which means we can service our clients in a way that others can't. And that’s a pretty exciting place to be.

What are you passionate about outside of work?

Well, that’s simple: My family. My wife is a doctor and we have two beautiful small boys who keep us busy and entertained. We also love travel, which probably reflects our careers in the past decade, having lived and worked in London, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.


Learn more about how you can be a part of an enterprising culture that empowers its people to do what's right for its clients, people and communities.
