Ryan Timpani Recognized as 2012 Rising Star By Colliers International


Colliers International Senior Associate of Office Properties, Ryan Timpani, was granted the 2012 National Rising Star Award for the U.S.

The Rising Star, which encompasses all brokerage property sectors, is given to one recipient. The award recognizes an up-and-coming talented broker with fewer than two years of experience in full-time brokerage. This distinction is given to a broker who demonstrates outstanding brokerage performance, shows tremendous future promise, is committed to building expertise and clearly exhibits Colliers’ core values.

Timpani emerges from a background in sales, where he received accolades for his superior service working as an associate at Nordstrom, while attending college. He has carried his customer service talents into his professional brokerage career. His client relationship skills earned him the 2011 Rookie of the Year award in Greater Phoenix. Ryan joined Colliers in mid-2010 and became a full-time broker in February 2011.

He was ambitious in his career pursuits long before his career at Colliers. As a first grader he wrote that his life goal was to own his own business; he worked in a brokerage office starting at the age of 16.

“I attribute my tenacity to my dad,” he says.

Growing up in a competitive, sports-focused household, he fondly remembers being pushed to his limits. His strong work ethic, which has permeated throughout his professional career, was instilled in him from a young age.

Timpani also attributes his successes with Colliers to his mentors and team leaders, senior vice presidents Keith Lambeth and Todd Noel. As a senior associate, he is a member of the office properties team of Lambeth, Noel and Shannon O’Keefe, marketing specialist. Their team has ranked as a top five producing team for the past five years.

Timpani exceeds Colliers’ expectations by being proactive and persistent when it comes to sourcing new business, as well as continually demonstrating the drive to be a top broker in the Metro Phoenix marketp. To date, Ryan has successfully negotiated leases in seven states for spaces up to 132,000 SF.

Timpani holds a bachelor of science in business marketing from Arizona State University. He is actively involved in the community and holds leadership roles in NAIOP Developing Leaders and Brokers for Kids, and helps out with a local youth basketball league.
