Highly Regarded Commercial Real Estate Executive Beth Halvorsen Joins Firm to Lead Dynamic Region
SEATTLE, September 25, 2020 – Colliers | U.S. announced today that Beth Halvorsen has joined the company as Executive Managing Director and the new leader of its Puget Sound (Seattle/Bellevue) brokerage business.
“Colliers’ sterling reputation and entrepreneurial spirit drew me to this incredible opportunity to lead a well-known and respected business in such an exciting region,” Halvorsen said. “I look forward to working with the tremendous teams already in place within Puget Sound and partnering with Colliers professionals across our global platform to foster continued growth for the company and enhanced value for our clients.”
In her new role, Halvorsen is responsible for the day-to-day management of Colliers’ brokerage operations in the Seattle and Bellevue offices including tenant representation, agency leasing and capital markets. This is an ideal situation as both Bill Condon and Derek Heed, who have admirably led the Seattle and Bellevue offices, respectively, will remain as key members of the Colliers Puget Sound leadership team while focusing their efforts more on their already thriving brokerage businesses.
Halvorsen brings more than 30 years of leadership and business development experience to Colliers. She spent five years leading property management in the Pacific Northwest for CBRE where she focused on fostering relationships with the firm’s institutional clients before working as an independent consultant within the real estate industry for the past two years. Prior to that, she held multiple leadership roles within the institutional real estate sector, including as and asset manager at TA Associates Realty and as a corporate real estate portfolio manager for Fidelity Investments.
Halvorsen holds a bachelor’s degree from Lewis and Clark College and is an active participant in industry organizations such as CCIM, NAIOP, BOMA and CREW.
“Adding a leader like Beth to our growing regional team is the latest in a series of actions to help accelerate the success of our clients and our professionals,” said Colliers Northwest Region President Kevin Morgan. “Under her leadership and with a strong team already in place, I am confident Colliers will continue to solidify itself as the commercial real estate services firm of choice in Puget Sound.”
