Colliers International has appointed former prime minister Stephen Harper to its board of directors, effective immediately.
“We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Harper join our Board,” said Jay S. Hennick, chairman and chief executive officer of Colliers. “Mr. Harper brings a wealth of experience along with the unparalleled knowledge of a former G7 leader, and insights that further differentiate our platform as we expand our business around the world. In particular, Mr. Harper’s extensive network during his time in government and demonstrated ability to deal with complex matters will enable Colliers and its clients to gain a unique international perspective.”
Mr. Harper recently retired as a Member of Parliament following his career in elected politics from 2006 to 2015.
“Colliers is a great Canadian success story with a highly recognized brand known around the world, a reputation for service excellence, and a highly engaged management team with a significant ownership stake in the company, all important factors in my decision to join the Board,” said Mr. Harper. “I am looking forward to working with Colliers to further its growth in global markets, capitalize on its leadership position in the commercial real estate services sector, and continue its proven track record of building value for shareholders.”
