Last month, Colliers hosted an office tour of our downtown Vancouver location for SFU Beedie Urban Development Program undergraduate students. The visit featured an opportunity to learn about the brokerage business from both our local leadership and top advisor.
The students spoke with Executive Managing Director, Doug Pulver on his career in CRE and time spent with Colliers. They also got to hear from Jennica Palecek on transitioning into CRE and Colliers’ initiatives on gender diversity in the industry. After their fireside chats with brokerage, the student closed out the evening listening to Jaraad Marani from our Strategy Consulting team, learning about the key client case students from Colliers’ current and past projects.
