Professional services and investment management firm Colliers has appointed Luke Dawson as head of global capital markets, on top of his existing role as capital markets leader for EMEA.
Dawson joined Colliers in 2004 as director of corporate development with a focus on M&A activity.
He then held several leadership roles within the Colliers capital markets business including business development, client engagement, investment sales and overall leadership across Central and Eastern European region.
Most recently, as managing director of cross-border capital markets, he was responsible for executing the regional strategy and driving growth of the capital markets service line.
'Building on our success as a leading capital markets advisor, our capital markets team is constantly growing and attracting top talent all over the world,' said Chris McLernon, CEO, global real estate services at Colliers. “We are excited for Luke to drive our Global Capital Markets strategy forward, delivering a best-in-class experience for our clients.”
Added Dawson: 'I am thrilled to be leading our global capital markets platform and support both our clients and people around the world in connecting capital with opportunities that will accelerate success for investors and our business.
'With our continued growth, we are well positioned in all major markets, and I look forward to ensuring we remain at the forefront in providing expert knowledge and advice on investments.'
Colliers currently numbers 1,500 capital markets professionals around the world, a figure boosted by its recent acquisition of Pangea.
