Greater Los Angeles, Calif. January 18, 2023 – Colliers today announced the appointment of Ryan Gillard as Senior Vice President to the firm’s top-performing retail investment sales team nationally, led by El Warner. Based out of Irvine, Gillard will support Colliers’ top institutional clients, leveraging his 19 years of in-house experience to increase market share in the Western U.S.
“The addition of Ryan to our high-performing retail investment team further strengthens our business in Southern California and across the Western U.S.,” says Managing Director Amanda Spangler, who leads the firm’s Orange County and Inland Empire markets. “Colliers remains committed to attracting top talent, and we are excited for Ryan to develop his career further while providing service excellence to our clients.”
Formerly the Senior Vice President of Investments for Donahue Schriber, Gillard has directed more than $2.6 billion in transactions throughout his career, proving an agile leader skilled in balancing the needs of buyers and sellers to facilitate seamless partnerships. Previous roles include Finance Manager for Panattoni Development and Treasury Analyst for LNR Property, LLC. He is a graduate of Northern Arizona University and an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).
“Ryan has extensive knowledge of the retail industry through his decades-long experience conducting business across California, Nevada, Arizona, and the Pacific Northwest,” said Warner. “He is a true collaborator, embodying the Colliers culture, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the team.”
Transacting close to $1 billion in retail investment sales annually, Warner’s team has nearly doubled in size over the last year, laser-focused on supporting the needs of Colliers’ clients in key markets across the Western U.S.
“I hired El Warner and his team to sell and advise Donahue Schriber on many of our retail assets on the West Coast,” said Gillard. “Based on the tremendous work his team has done, the distinctive culture and entrepreneurial spirit Colliers is known for, and what this team has accomplished since joining in 2019 is inspiring. I am excited to join El’s team in this new capacity at Colliers to foster additional growth and enhance client service.”
