Professional Summary

With more than 40 years' experience as an office properties, corporate solutions, and tenant representation specialist, my expertise lies in developing large-scale analytical feasibility studies and executing corporate and professional relocation services. With an extremely active office brokerage practice, in the past two years I’ve completed transactions totaling 2 million square feet with a value exceeding $200 million, allowing me to remain an industry leading producer.

I have also gained considerable expertise leading the transaction management services for corporate real estate occupiers on a regional or national basis. My clients include A.T. Kearney, the global consulting firm, where I oversee a one-million-square-foot portfolio, and NorthShore University HealthSystem, recently named one of the nation’s top 10 health systems, where I’ve completed more than 300 medical/office transactions totaling more than one million square feet.

I began my career with Hawthorn Realty Group in Chicago, but since, I have spent nearly my entire career with Colliers International. I joined the firm in 1980, and I am currently one of seven principals on the Chicago office’s Executive Committee, which is instrumental in shaping the firm’s strategic growth and client relationships.
