Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers has added to its brokerage roster with the addition of Michael Anderstrom.

MINNEAPOLIS - October 18, 2021 – Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers has added to its brokerage roster with the addition of Michael Anderstrom. On October 1, Anderstrom assumed the title of associate vice president and senior advisor of life science and health technology real estate services.

 

“Minnesota’s Medical Alley forms the central coast of the rapidly growing national life science and health technology sector. Michael is already seen as a trusted advisor within this sector given his industry experience, technical acumen and real estate know-how,” said Managing Director and Minneapolis-St. Paul Market Leader Jeremy Jacobs. “Michael’s addition to our team further cements our status as the go-to team for life science, health technology and healthcare advisory and real estate services.”

 

Prior to Anderstrom’s hire, Colliers MSP had more than a half dozen professionals advising in the life science & health technology sectors. Most notably the team represented Discovery Square in Rochester, MN, which is a long-standing partnership between Mortenson, Mayo Clinic and many other companies and institutions. The addition of Anderstrom elevates the sector as a strategic focus for the firm, with clients benefiting from Anderstrom’s years of experience supporting companies through the process of research commercialization.

 

“The Colliers team has a wealth of experience representing the real estate interests of life science developers, owners, investors and tenants in Minnesota and across the US,” said Anderstrom. “I am looking forward to collaborating with my new colleagues in the market and around the country to build on our reputation of being a trusted voice and resource for the life science and health technology community.”

 

Anderstrom joins Colliers from The Brookshire Co., where he spent two years as a broker representing clients in the sale or leasing of lab, cleanroom manufacturing and flex space. While in this role, Anderstrom successfully built and launched an online platform geared towards helping medical and biotechnology companies find clean lab and research facilities. Prior to his career in brokerage, Michael worked in the medical device industry in a variety of sales, operations and business development roles. By leveraging his background in ISO 13485, cGMP, cleanrooms and FDA Regulatory and Quality requirements, he has provided valuable expertise to medical device and pharma business leaders seeking a flexible and compliant real estate footprint, and landlords requiring specialized knowledge to list and market life science properties to the industry.

Minneapolis - St. Paul

I began my career as on Active Duty in the United States Army (2006-2011).  I spent nearly five years as a Judge Advocate General (attorney), an experience that was highlighted by a deployment to Iraq in 2008.  I also spent time practicing as a Tax Attorney, Contract & Fiscal Law Attorney, Administrative Attorney and completed my tenure in the Army as a prosecutor.  

Over the past 8 years, while with Ryan Companies (2011 - 2015) followed by Mortenson Development, Inc. (2015 - 2019), I supported and then led a number of developments across the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota.  The seminal achievement of my development career was leading the development of One Discovery Square, the first phase of a Life Science district in Rochester, Minnesota, which was done in collaboration with Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota Rochester, Epic Medical Records, and a variety of other commercial partners.  The District is described as the economic engine of the Destination Medical Center, a $585M public-private partnership -- the largest such partnership in Minnesota's history.

I employ a people-first, servant-leader approach. I believe in the value of collaboration and strong teams, in peer accountability, and in the power of leveraging insight to the benefit of our client's businesses.
