Associate Project Manager
Working with industry veteran Don Jenkins, I deliver support for Midwest construction project management services. As Project Manager I work together with Colliers’ clients creating value helping clients to create and occupy a new space that will support their business strategy and then help manage the complexities behind it.
Prior to joining Colliers I have enjoyed a career in commercial real estate development and construction management in the Chicago and St. Louis markets. My background includes a successful history delivering project management, planning, reporting, scheduling and public engagement for new construction, reinvestment, retail development and interior projects. It is this diverse combination of retail and commercial interiors that enables me to understand the requirements of customer-focused spaces and apply knowledge gained from all disciplines.
Senior Director, Project Management
Chicago - Downtown
I began my career in construction, where I spent 15 years managing construction of commercial and industrial buildings. After witnessing several projects begin with bad information, unrealistic timelines and cost expectations that didn’t meet the market, I moved into project management to ensure my clients had an industry expert as their advocate. Today, I head Colliers' project management team in the Midwest.
My experience in design, construction and management of large portfolios of property helps ensure that the total real estate picture is considered in any transaction. My abilities range from strategic occupancy planning, to site analysis and selection, negotiation support, design, construction and move management. I have managed the selection, design and construction of more than 140 million square feet of real estate with total project values exceeding $2 billion. I have managed numerous types of projects including corporate headquarters, public buildings, redevelopment and repositioning of facilities, mission critical facilities, warehouse and industrial development, retail, multi-family, medical office and commercial interiors.
I work with senior management to understand their business goals and translate those into facility decisions that are completed on time and on budget while meeting the highest quality standards. I am the one constant from the concept through to occupancy and beyond.
Prior to joining Colliers, I founded and built the project management business unit at CB Richard Ellis and Equis. I am one of the pioneers of client oriented project management and help each client ensure they have an expert on their side during any facility project.
With a bachelor's degree in architecture, I have additional training through the Project Management Institute, Corenet Global and The United States Green Building Council.
