Colliers Dawson takes on extra global capital markets role

Colliers’ Luke Dawson is to take on a new role, setting the global strategic agenda for Colliers Capital Markets.

He has been appointed the firm’s new head of global capital markets, but will also retain his existing role as capital markets leader for EMEA.

Dawson joined Colliers as director of corporate development in 2004. His focus was then on M&A activity. This was followed by several leadership roles within the firm’s 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.

“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, Chief Executive Officer, 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.”

Colliers now has 1,500 capital markets professionals globally. “With our continued growth, we are well positioned in all major markets,” said Dawson.
