It’s a game of numbers and names, and in a world where transaction volumes often indicate monetary success, one number specifically reflects leadership and excellence in the global commercial real estate industry.
That number is highlighted in the 12th annual Lipsey survey. The Lipsey Co., the industry’s leading training consultancy, has ranked Colliers International among the top global brands in its survey of more than 100,000 industry professionals from commercial property owners, investors and lenders, to brokers and property managers around the globe.
For the fourth year in a row, Colliers International was ranked second out of 25 firms.
“Our ranking in the Lipsey survey reflects the dedication of our professionals to deliver exceptional service to our clients. We continue to attract the best talent in the industry— experts who provide innovative and strategic solutions for our clients,” said Bob Mulhern, Managing Director of Colliers International in Greater Phoenix.
“Our Lipsey ranking reflects more than our yearly number of transactions,” said Doug Frye, global president and CEO of Colliers International. “It displays our dedication to service and expertise – which is at the core of who we are. Our employees around the globe are truly committed to our clients and the success of this firm and we thank them for their exceptional work in the past year.”
Colliers employs about 12,300 professionals in 522 offices in 62 countries worldwide.
Frye added that Colliers International outpaced all of its key competitors in revenue growth — up 18% globally in 2012, he said.
“Our goal is not necessarily to be the biggest firm,” said Dylan Taylor, CEO of Colliers International in the Americas. “Our goal has always been to be the best firm. As we navigate through complex transactions and provide enterprising, strategic solutions, our clients see how well we understand our industry and turn to Colliers for exemplary service.”
