In Memoriam: W.N. (Bill) Hobbs

Bill Hobbs Obituary
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we share the news of the sudden passing of our colleague W.N. (Bill) Hobbs. We extend our deepest condolences to Bill's family, friends, and all those who cherished him.

Bill was a remarkable leader whose passion for commercial real estate and dedication left an indelible mark on the industry. He was an industry veteran of over 35 years, notably in the Port Kells/Northwest Langley industrial market. His friendship and exceptional client service were qualities that endeared him to all who had the privilege of working with him. In 2022, he brought his unique talents and expertise to our Colliers Canada team in Vancouver, British Columbia as our Senior Vice President, Industrial. Bill was known for providing an exceptional level of service to his clients, solidifying his recognized reputation in the industry. Beyond his client service, he made an incredible impact on the Vancouver Industrial team's culture, sharing his experience with fellow advisors and those around him, embodying the true essence of leadership.

His notable career featured over a thousand acres of industrial product and millions of square feet of warehouse space, helping businesses in British Columbia to grow and thrive, positively impacting the community with jobs and economic prosperity.

As we honour Bill's legacy, we extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones during this difficult time. We remember Bill not only for his professional accomplishments but also for his exceptional client service and his role as a mentor and friend to many. His influence on the industry and the people he touched will be greatly missed.
