Colliers boss to step down in 2025

12th June 2024 | Jack Oliver

Property services and investment management company Colliers has announced that Tony Horrell, CEO of United Kingdom and Ireland, will retire in 2025.

This comes after a 42-year career in real estate as an expert in capital markets and a business leader.

Having joined Colliers in 2010, Horrell has expanded the business in both the UK and Ireland, helping to grow the company to over 1,000 employees.

Colliers said he has consistently developed the organisation through organic growth and acquisitions, and focused on the needs of clients in response to evolving real estate trends during several economic cycles.

Following the resignation announcement, Colliers has commenced the search process for a new UK and Ireland CEO, with Horrell continuing to lead the business until a successor is appointed.

Tony Horrell said: “I am immensely proud of the high performing business and close client relationships we have built at Colliers – a company with a strong culture where our people enjoy working with each other and our clients. We have exceptional teams and leaders focused on our clients’ needs, delivering services in a balanced business around the full real estate lifecycle to maximise potential. I look forward to seeing Colliers continue to excel with new leadership and focusing my time on assisting the transition and strategic client relationships in 2025.”

Davoud Amel-Azizpour, CEO of EMEA at Colliers, added: “Tony is an enterprising leader who fully represents our Colliers values. He has carried Colliers forward with vision, accelerating the success of our clients and our people and growing the business through many market challenges. I wish to thank him for his outstanding leadership in developing our robust and diversified offering as a market-leading business in the UK and Ireland.”
