Colliers Names Capital Markets Veteran Robert Gilley to Its Western Regional Institutional Investment Team

Announcement is latest of several recent high-profile appointments

SAN FRANCISCO, May 25, 2016 — In a continuing campaign to assert its dominance in the capital markets arena throughout the West, Colliers International (NASDAQ: CIGI; TSX: CIG) today announced that industry veteran Robert Gilley has joined its Institutional Investment team as a Managing Director. He will be based in the firm’s San Francisco office and will focus on institutional clients in the office and R&D markets throughout the West.


“I’m looking forward to Colliers’ well-known entrepreneurial and nimble culture that puts clients’ needs first,” said Gilley, who is a 20-year industry veteran with a career that has included senior posts at several major competing commercial real estate firms. “I have known and worked with several professionals here for years and know that I will be quickly integrated into the company’s collaborative culture that is a well-known hallmark of Colliers throughout the industry.”

Gilley’s appointment is the latest of several high-profile additions the firm has recently made in its Institutional Investment Division. Earlier this month, the firm added Executive Managing Director Robert Stamm, an accomplished international capital markets expert, and his team to its Western Regional Institutional Investment Division. In addition, Stamm will play a key role in the firm’s National Institutional Investment Division focusing on business development and recruiting.

In April, the firm reported that senior capital markets advisor Michael Roberts had joined its Institutional Investment Division as a Managing Director based in San Diego, focusing on representing institutional owners of office and R&D properties throughout the West

“One of our strategic goals in the West has been to recruit and retain the most accomplished brokers in all categories of commercial real estate, but particularly in the highly specialized arena known as capital markets,” said Martin Pupil, president of Colliers’ Western Region. “Bob has the expertise of working on complicated transactions, building strong relationships with clients, and we’re looking forward to welcoming him to our service-oriented capital markets platform.”

Gilley, along with Stamm and Roberts, and their teams, now join the highly respected and well-accomplished existing Colliers Capital Markets platform in the West comprised of industry leaders Rick Putnam and Bret Hardy, who both serve as Managing Directors in the firm’s Western Region.

“Since the national economy is transitioning to a knowledge-based economy powered by technology companies, and the center of that new economy is here in the West,” added Regional Executive Managing Director Alan Collenette, who oversees the firm’s San Francisco, Marin and Sacramento offices. “it makes perfect sense that we would emphasize and put considerable resources into our capital markets efforts here with the recruitment of the best and brightest. Bob and the rest of our expanding team fit that definition precisely.”
