Recently Launched Strategy & Consulting Group is Thriving


Launched less than a year ago, Colliers Strategy & Consulting (S&C) Group has excelled as a niche offering and is helping our clients across Canada realize additional value from their assets and optimize the performance of their real estate portfolios.

A tailored blend of advisory and consulting services, the S&C Group includes strategic advisory, development management and workplace advisory. Bringing these services together is a natural extension of Colliers’ integrated, client-centric approach and leverages the team’s unparalleled expertise, scale, and resources in the commercial real estate sector.

Amidst the pandemic, the team has continued to impress clients with expert advice and recommended efficiencies. As our team thrives, we are pleased that Peter Cuthbert has joined the team as the inaugural partner to the Group. Officially starting today, Peter will be leading the real estate portfolio and asset strategy practice within the business line.

Another key new hire, Shalisha Senkow has joined the S&C Group as an Associate Vice President of Workplace Advisory.  Shalisha is an experienced strategist successful in developing and implementing workplace change management and engagement strategies, we are thrilled to have her on the team.
