About Ward

WARD RICHMOND, SIOR

I am an Executive Vice President and shareholder at Colliers International (NASDAQ: CIGI) and my team within Colliers specializes in working with C-level executives and operational specialists to develop and execute corporate real estate strategies on a local and global basis in an effort to maximize operational efficiencies and value.

My primary focus is representing dominant logistics companies in the acquisition and disposition of “supply chain real estate” – warehouses, truck terminals, manufacturing facilities and industrial land.

With over 12 years of experience, I have developed an unparalleled understanding of Supply Chain Real Estate strategy via negotiating 500+ transactions in 50+ cities (in US/ Canada/ Mexico) while generating millions in value for my customers. Not to mention- we have fun doing it!

My clients and teammates are all folks who you can trust with a handshake. Life is too short to operate any other way!

I enjoy reading and writing about eCommerce and the logistics industry and it truly brightens my day when my thoughts and articles are featured in publications like Wall Street Journal‘s Logistics Report and Dallas Business Journal.

I am extremely active within the Colliers International Logistics & Transportation Solutions Group and am a proud and active member of IWLA, IAMC, Texas Warehouse Association and The Forbes Real Estate Council.

When I‘m not attending a Tony Robbins conference or taking selfies in warehouses, I pride myself on being a lifelong athlete having played collegiate level football and rugby. I‘ve also completed 3 Ironman triathlons with a 12:30 PR – which is pretty good for a big guy. I am currently focused on my hot power yoga practice and I plan to master the handstand in 2018!
