Colliers Cincinnati Expands; Welcoming Two New Marketing Associates

Colliers consciously builds culture as it embraces new talents, Emily Thomas, and Janine Mason

The ever-growing Colliers Greater Cincinnati office is ecstatic to announce the onboarding of two new additional marketing associates, Emily Thomas, and Janine Mason, who started September 20th, 2021.


"We are excited to have Janine and Emily join Colliers,” said Marketing Director, Catherine Williams, who has patiently sought the additions, “Since the beginning of last year our main goal has been to expand our team and to give both our agents, and our clients, Class A marketing and resources.”


Catherine approached the hiring process with tack, persistence, and a clear vision. “As leaders, it is our job to fill positions with the perfect candidate to create fluency, transparency, and trust within our office,” stated Catherine.


Colliers Greater Cincinnati is confident both Emily and Janine are “the perfect candidate,” and cannot wait to see how each of them grows in their position. Emily and Janine’s upbeat spirit, propensity for collaboration, and extensive knowledge of marketing platforms will be an asset to both the marketing team and the brokers she represents.


Filling positions with their rightful match, like Emily and Janine, requires a thorough understanding of the involved teams’ needs, as well as an acute vision for the office culture and the end objective of accelerating their client’s success. A recipient of the 2021 Top Workplace Award, Colliers Cincinnati takes building office culture seriously - and it shows. 


"Our culture is important to us, so we want to make sure we are being deliberate about whom we are adding to our team,” explained Catherine.

The difference Colliers Cincinnati makes is rooted in the understanding that to maximize success (whether that be of clients, the office, or individuals) you need to diligently (and continuously) learn not only about others but about yourself.


“We have spent a tremendous amount of time understanding what our clients and employees need and how we can best serve those needs, said Managing Director of Brokerage Services, Joe Wiles, “Every time we decide to add a piece to our team, we thoughtfully interview and ultimately hire individuals who will not only fulfill the needs of our clients but will also enhance our culture. Emily and Janine have the qualities our team was seeking to enhance our client relationships and culture. I believe that culture breeds success, and I will bet on a positive, supportive, and challenging culture every day.”
