Macdonald, Canada’s first Prime Minister.

“We are extremely pleased to have Mr. Harper join our Board,” said Jay S. Hennick, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Colliers. “Mr. Harper brings a wealth of experience along with the unparalleled knowledge of a former G7 leader, and insights that further differentiate our platform as we expand our business around the world. In particular, Mr. Harper’s extensive network during his time in government and demonstrated ability to deal with complex matters will enable Colliers and its clients to gain a unique international perspective. We are proud that Mr. Harper has agreed to join our team and excited about the contribution he will make in accelerating our success.”

Mr. Harper holds a bachelor and master’s degree in economics from the University of Calgary, and was awarded an honorary doctorate of philosophy from Tel Aviv University in 2014.

“Colliers is a great Canadian success story with a highly recognized brand known around the world, a reputation for service excellence, and a highly engaged management team with a significant ownership stake in the company, all important factors in my decision to join the Board,” said Mr. Harper. “I am looking forward to working with Colliers to further its growth in global markets, capitalize on its leadership position in the commercial real estate services sector, and continue its proven track record of building value for shareholders.”
