MIAMI, January 4, 2021 – Colliers | U.S. announced today that Julie Northcutt-Dunn has joined the firm as Executive Managing Director and Market Leader for the company’s business in South Florida, which includes offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach.
In her new role, Julie will directly oversee all Brokerage operations and service lines in South Florida with a focus on new business development, talent recruitment, talent retention and marketing. She will report to Ryan Kratz, President, Southeast Region | U.S. Brokerage. Kratz will remain in the South Florida market and a key member of the company’s U.S. Leadership Team. He is one of Colliers’ four Regional Presidents as he oversees 20 offices throughout the Southeast and parts of the Midwest.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the enterprising team at Colliers during a time when our business in South Florida is thriving,” said Northcutt-Dunn. “In partnership with our deep bench of local talent and regional and national leadership, I am confident Colliers will continue to grow throughout the region.”
Northcutt-Dunn brings more than 15 years of industry experience to Colliers, most recently as Regional Sales Director of CBRE's Midwest Division, where she filled two valuable roles: Sales Management Leader and interim Managing Director of Corporate Client Solutions. Prior to her work at CBRE, Julie held executive leadership roles in the financial services industry, including as Senior Vice President, Mortgage Executive at Fifth Third Bank.
Under Kratz's leadership, Colliers has significantly strengthened its influence in the South Florida market. The firm acquired strategically positioned brokerage and property management firms such as Continental Real Estate Companies (CREC), with a focus on retail, and Michael Falk & Co., with a focus on office and industrial in Palm Beach county. During the same time, a number of notable professionals joined the Colliers team including Jonathan Carter, Dave Preston, Nikki Traff, Keith Edelman, Scott Goldstein, and Mark Rubin. In 2019, Kratz hired Greg Main-Baillie to lead Colliers’s fast-growing Development Services project and construction management operation.
“As the Market Leader for Colliers’ 75-broker South Florida operation for the last two years, I know that the business has grown to the size and service line complexity that requires full time market leadership by a top-tier professional,” Kratz said. “Julie’s unique, entrepreneurial spirit matches our Colliers values perfectly, and under her experienced leadership, I expect Colliers to continue to increase market share and attract top talent.”
