Boston – In a tactical move to grow its Capital Markets team, Colliers International Boston’s Executive Managing Director and Market Leader David Goodhue announced the recent hiring of Assistant Vice President Bryan Koop.
Koop joins Colliers from J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. where he worked on the sourcing and originating of CMBS loans. Prior to J.P. Morgan, Koop spent two years at Deutsche Bank Securities where he also focused on loan origination.
Throughout his tenure at the two institutions, he has worked on and closed over $1 billion of commercial real estate debt transactions across all asset types. Koop graduated magna cum laude from Texas Christian University, where he was a First Team All-Conference rugby player. He will join Capital Markets leaders, Executive Vice President Jeff Black, Co-chair Kevin Phelan, and Senior Vice President Christopher Sower in growing the dynamic team to a total of 19 Capital Markets-focused advisors.
“This hire is a big win for Colliers,” said Jeff Black. “As an already seasoned and proven star, Bryan’s arrival will immediately increase our team’s depth and capabilities, allowing us to continue to grow market share across product types while offering the highest level of service to our clients. Recent team additions are a true testament to our commitment to excellence and relentless optimism in the Capital Markets platform.”
Koop’s hiring comes on the heels of another recent Capital Markets addition with talented Debt & Equity Analyst Jared Lebowitz beginning back in mid-February. Jared came to Colliers with internship experience at both Legacy Real Estate Ventures, LLC and AEW Capital Management, and has already proven to be a strong addition to the group. Since Goodhue’s promotion to Boston Market Leader this past December, he has been incredibly thoughtful about finding the right people to shape Colliers Boston for the next twenty-plus years.
“We have infused the company with next generation talent across all departments and see the benefit of this reinforcing our infrastructure in the strongest way possible,” shared Goodhue. “I could not be more excited about our current position and where we are headed.”
Colliers International President of Investments and Eastern Region and Co-Head of US Capital Markets, David Amsterdam, shared in the team’s enthusiasm, stating that “Bryan’s experience across the US in CMBS and loan origination will continue to enhance the depth and expansion of Colliers’ national Capital Markets presence.”
