Colliers International | Wisconsin, the state’s largest third-party real estate services firm, has named Chris Richards managing director and market leader of its Madison office.
The appointment of Richards, a Madison native, reflects the Firm’s ongoing growth in Wisconsin with offices currently in Milwaukee and Fox Valley. Richards will be responsible for Colliers’ growth in the Madison and the greater southwest Wisconsin commercial real estate market.
“Madison and the surrounding area continue to present tremendous potential for growth, which is why Colliers remains bullish on this region, and why I’m thrilled to lead this high-potential venture,” Richards said. “Colliers’ integrated, full-service approach and its global reach will be a unique offering in the Madison commercial real estate market.”
Colliers manages approximately 12,000,000 square feet state-wide and close to 1 million square feet in the greater Madison market with expectations for ongoing growth.
“Madison is a strong and resilient commercial real estate market regardless of broader economic conditions,” said Lyle Landowski, COO of Colliers International | Wisconsin. “Chris brings local expertise that, when paired with our broad, integrated approach, will help drive our growth in the Madison area and contribute to the consistent growth we’ve experienced throughout the state.”
While the Madison office is locally owned and operated, it also has access to an array of services and support that Colliers International, a global leader in the industry, provides to all of its local offices and commercial real estate professionals.
