Hadley Dean, MRICS
Managing Partner, Colliers International, Poland
As Managing Partner for Eastern Europe, I am responsible for leading and driving the growth of our business in eight countries including Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. I am passionate about building a company that is fun to work for and a pleasure to do business with.
I am focused on building business standards, relationships and a culture to become a market leader in every country and business line. Over the last five years I am proud to show that every key Colliers business line has either improved or maintained its market share standing versus the competition during some difficult times for the real estate market:
• We continue to be No. 1 in terms of the number of investment transactions closed across the region – a position we have held for 5 years.
• We continue to be No. 1 in the industrial and logistics practice, consistently closing more deals and m2 volumes than any of our peer group for the last five years.
• We have grown our office agency team capabilities in recent years, increasing the volume of deals closed in 2013 by 25% relative to a market average of 6%. This high growth rate has enabled us to close the gap on our competitors and has been achieved by growing the business organically rather than through acquisitions.
As part of the Colliers International EMEA Board, I help set the direction of the business throughout the broader region and in particular, I am responsible for growing the industrial and logistics business across EMEA. Our people are our greatest asset and as Dean of Colliers University, I am committed to helping our people grow both personally and professionally.
With over 20 years commercial real estate experience, I joined Colliers in 2001 as Managing Director for Poland with regional responsibilities for the industrial and logistics business. In 2005, I was promoted to Managing Partner, three years later my responsibility expanded to Central and Eastern Europe and in 2011 this expanded to Eastern Europe.
