by Steve Randall05 Mar 2020

Colliers International will have a new chief executive officer for Canada at the end of the month.

The firm has announced that current chief operating officer for Canada, Brian Rosen, will become president & CEO on March 31, 2020. He will succeed David Bowden who will transition to a new role as CEO, Colliers Real Estate Strategy & Consulting, reporting into Rosen.

“Colliers is the market leader in commercial real estate in large part because of David’s tireless efforts and we are all looking forward to watching him expand our Real Estate Strategy & Consulting practice across the country,” said Jay Hennick, Global Chairman & Chief Executive Officer.

Bowden’s new role will be to focus on building growth for the firm’s clients who have significant real estate assets and portfolios.

“Real estate consulting aimed at large assets and portfolios is a significant emerging opportunity and while we have a large business already, David’s leadership will take us to the next level of growth in years to come,” added Hennick.

For Brian Rosen, taking the Canadian CEO role comes just a year after he joined the firm.

“In a short period of time, Brian has exceeded our expectations. His well-established reputation and embodiment of all our company’s core values make him a natural fit to succeed David. I am confident he will excel in his new role and continue to drive growth and profitability throughout our Canadian business,” continued Hennick.

Rosen says that it is an exciting time for Colliers in Canada and he is confident that his team will deliver further growth.

“I believe in our vision and ability to shape the future of commercial real estate. I look forward to continuing on the trajectory David has established to accelerate the success of our clients across all of our business lines,” he said.
