LAS VEGAS – Mike Mixer, executive managing director of Colliers International – Las Vegas, announced the company is launching a new Las Vegas Investment Services Division. Colliers has hired Bridget Richards and Jason Lesley both as senior vice presidents to lead this division.
Richards and Lesley have extensive industry knowledge and experience with commercial real estate, including all investment and high-profile owner-user disciplines: office, medical office, industrial, retail, multi-family and mobile home communities.
Prior to joining Colliers International, the duo successfully established New Growth Commercial Real Estate Company, an innovative, boutique commercial real estate brokerage firm. As part of New Growth, Richards and Lesley flourished, closing more than $560 million in transaction volume, which makes both a perfect fit for leading the new Las Vegas Investment Services Division.
“We are excited to bring our collaborative, entrepreneurial spirit to Colliers International,” Richards said. “The high-profile clients we enjoy working with on transactions deserve the sophisticated platform Colliers International – Las Vegas provides. We are thrilled for the opportunity to work in such an innovative and vibrant corporate culture.”
Their dedication to a client’s acquisition or disposition strategy has contributed to the success New Growth Commercial Real Estate Company has seen over the years. Richards and Lesley will continue to use that same drive as they begin their endeavor with the new Las Vegas Investment Services Division at Colliers International.
“We are excited to announce that Bridget Richards and Jason Lesley are joining Colliers International,” Mixer said. “Their extensive background, expertise, and dedication to commercial investment real estate will help shape and grow our new Las Vegas Investment Services Division. The quality of service they provide to clients will further position Colliers as the leading commercial real estate firm in Southern Nevada.”
