Professional Summary

James is a committed and solution-driven Retail Leasing Broker, who focuses on national retailers in the large format retail sector. He works tirelessly to understand his clients' property requirements and provides solutions to achieve the best results for his clients.

While completing his Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Property degrees at the University of Auckland, James received four first-in-course awards, was named 'Property Student of the Year' in 2017 and was awarded the Senior Scholar Award for his course at graduation. James had great success in Property Case Competitions as well, and after winning the internal University of Auckland competition he competed in the University of Sydney Business School Real Estate Competition (placing 3rd in 2017, and 2nd in 2018) and the Cornell International Real Estate Competition (held in New York). 

Before starting at Colliers, James worked at one of New Zealand's largest listed property companies, Kiwi Property for over six years. While still at University, he rotated around the multiple departments of the business, including Development, Commercial, Facilities Management, Retail, and Leasing, giving him a good grasp on how all the different parts of the Property sector work. He quickly discovered that his passion was in Retail Leasing, and in 2018, became a Leasing Analyst at Kiwi Property, where he was responsible for the leasing forecasting and budgeting for the $277 million Galleria expansion and H&M backfill at Sylvia Park. He was also a key contributor to the tracking and communication of the company's Covid-19 response to over 800 Retail Tenants across the portfolio. In December 2020, James was promoted to the role of Leasing Executive - Retail, where he was the leasing lead on the Plaza in Palmerston North and Northlands in Christchurch. In FY22, James completed the most number of Leasing deals for the company and brought some significant new tenants to the centres, including Starbucks and Mountain Warehouse.
