Colliers International Among Top Brands in Global Commercial Real Estate Industry
The Lipsey Survey Rankings Affirm Colliers’ Industry Leadership, Initiatives
Reaffirming Colliers International’s leadership in the commercial real estate industry, The Lipsey Co., the industry’s leading training consultancy, has ranked Colliers among the top global brands in a new survey of more than 50,000 industry professionals.
The 11th annual Lipsey survey, which ranked Colliers second overall for the third year in a row, was conducted among commercial property owners, investors, lenders, brokers and property managers around the globe.
“We’re very proud of our global ranking because it affirms our international leadership,” said Doug Frye, global president and CEO of Colliers International. “Ours is a tremendous global brand that embraces sustainability, thought leadership, and an excellent international management team. But, it all starts at the local level with quality people and exceptional client service.”
Dylan Taylor, CEO of Colliers International in the U.S., agreed. “We’ve worked hard to further enhance our client services in markets around the world, and we’ve made some big gains,” he said. “And, as Doug points out, it’s a tribute to all of our employees around the globe who are committed to exemplary client service,” he said.
“We were pleased to see the high Colliers International ranking in the Lipsey Survey, and feel proud of our global brand’s incredible strength,” said Gregg Broujos, managing director and founding principal at Colliers International | Pittsburgh. “The combination of Colliers International’s strong leadership at every level and the “best in class” brokers in every office allows us to serve our clients like no other commercial real estate firm in the world.”
Frye added that Colliers International outpaced all of its key competitors in revenue growth in 2011 — up 37% globally — which was nearly double its competitors’ growth rate, he said. Locally, the Pittsburgh office of Colliers International saw revenue growth of almost 40%.
The Lipsey Co. survey uses a combination of voting and focus groups to calculate the relative strength of commercial real estate brands among all categories in the industry, including brokerage services, real estate investment trusts (REITs), developers, property managers and data providers.
