Colliers International in Greater Phoenix has hired Bruce Herr to serve as its new Director of Project Management to streamline the design and construction of clients’ real estate projects.
From start to finish, Herr will oversee the scheduling and budgeting of projects and coordinate efforts of team members including architects, general contractors and vendors.
Herr plans to eventually expand the practice to serve as an independent, third-party project manager for interested businesses in the Phoenix area. Herr will provide the service for a fee, whether or not the business is using Colliers for its real estate transaction.
“Consistent and transparent communication is key to project management,” Herr said. “We quarterback the nuanced details so the client may focus on other business priorities.”
For the past 15 years, Herr has worked with Heery International in Seattle, a full service architecture, engineering, construction management and program management firm. During his career there, he led a team of 60 design and construction professionals and served as a project executive on projects in multiple Western states.
Most recently, Herr was Heery’s project executive for the $187 million Mariposa Land Port of Entry expansion in Nogales, Ariz. Earlier in his career he worked for Texas-based companies Brown & Root and Trammell Crow Company.
Herr’s skills include project, construction and capital expenditure management, strategic business planning, contract negotiation and management and team building.
“Bruce’s executive level experience and strong emphasis on serving the best interests of the client will propel business opportunities for our clients,” said Bob Mulhern, managing director of Colliers International in Greater Phoenix.
