Colliers International has announced the appointment of Stephen Connor as Head of the Valuation and Advisory department in Czech Republic starting from June 2011.
Connor said of his appointment "After three very enjoyable years working with the Polish valuation team, I am looking forward to working in Prague, both with the existing valuation team, and the new management, to grow Colliers' business in that market."
Connor worked in the public sector in his native Scotland for 12 years, during which time he qualified as a chartered surveyor (MRICS) in 1999. His work in this field involved the provision of valuations for a full range of property types for the purposes of taxation. He joined Colliers in Poland in 2008, to provide valuation services for their international clients, and to ensure that reports are produced to the high standard which clients expect. In April 2010 he was promoted to the position of Director of Valuation, Poland.
Whilst serving some of the biggest players on the Polish market, Connor has also been involved in the co-ordination of cross-border valuations in conjunction with Colliers' other offices within the CEE region and this appointment will further strengthen Colliers' regional capability.
Tim Nicholls, Managing Director, CEE Valuation and Advisory Services commented on the appointment: "Stephen brings with him a wealth of experience that will complement our already strong team in the Czech Republic. I'm looking forward to working with him on the continued expansion of our market share in valuation and advisory services."
Omar Sattar, Managing Director, Colliers International in Czech Republic added: "I am very excited about Stephen joining our Czech office to head up the Valuation and Advisory business. He brings with him a great degree of professionalism, has a great attitude and is one of the most experienced valuers working in the CEE region."
