Colliers International is a launching a new Project Management division in New Zealand to build on the work from the team in Australia which has delivered large scale projects on both sides of the Tasman.
Kerry Woods is set to lead the division, with more than 15 years’ experience working as a project and development manager in New Zealand and the United Kingdom and most recently oversaw the refurbishment of Auckland’s QBE Centre as senior development manager at Winton. He previously worked as an associate director for Rebbeck Dunn Watters who delivered project management services for Colliers until 2014.
“I’m looking forward to establishing Colliers as a project management leader and delivering an exceptional level of service to our clients. Our aim is to establish a specialised project management capability with an initial focus on larger projects,” said Woods.
“We will cover all the key commercial sectors including office, industrial, retail, education and healthcare. As the division grows, we will also look to add a development management capability to our range of services.”
The first projects for Woods at the team will be a fit-out of Colliers International’s new Auckland headquarters in the PwC Tower.
“Colliers has some of the best and longest-established relationships in commercial property. Kerry’s new team will build on these relationships to deliver an expanded suite of property services,” said Mark Synnott, New Zealand chief executive, Colliers International.
“Kerry will also be working closely with the Colliers Project Management team in Australia, which has a great range of experience. Adopting their systems and processes will allow the new team to hit the ground running.”
Woods starts his role at the company in late January 2019.
