Managing Director | Property Tax Services | Western Canada
As an Executive Director at Colliers International I am fortunate enough to lead a passionate team that assists companies take a proactive approach in reviewing and reducing their property assessments & taxation. With a growing team of professionals we are able to support our clients above and beyond their expectations.
Our goal is to assure our clients that their property assessments are accurate and that they aren’t paying too much in property tax year after year. Located out of the Calgary office I specialize in managing commercial real estate. With over a decade of experience in the industry my focus is on all commercial real estate specializing in Retail, Office, Industrial, Hotel, Multi-Residential and Vacant Land.
I believe that it is very important as a professional to keep up-to-date with industry changes and as a member of ICSC, CPTA, SASCA I am able to keep in touch with influential individuals and to be aware of all industry changes. Currently I am the Provincial Director for ICSC (International Council of Shopping Centres) overseeing Alberta Manitoba, & Saskatchewan. I am also on the executive committee for the Canadian Property Tax Association Western Chapter as Chairmain and currently chair the Western Chapter Market-Value sub committee.
When I’m not at work you can find me relaxing at home with my wife and three kids, at the gym or out at the Hockey Rink/Soccer Field/Baseball Diamond coaching my Son & Daughter's teams.
Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss property assessment & taxation.
