Executive Transition at Colliers as US Brokerage President Martin Pupil Departs Firm

Dylan Taylor Takes Over After Veteran Executive Accepts Offer to Join Regional Firm as Principal
July 12, 2018
After 14 years, Martin Pupil has left Colliers International to take a principal position at an undisclosed regional real estate firm.

Martin Pupil has left Colliers International after helping lead the company through rapid expansion and change. Pupil, who served as president of the U.S. brokerage since December 2016, accepted a job with a regional firm "focusing on the principal side of our industry," Colliers International president and chief operating officer Dylan Taylor said in a message to the company's global presidents and market leaders.

In the announcement supplied to CoStar News, Taylor said he has taken over Pupil's responsibilities on a temporary basis. Pupil's departure was first reported by Connect Media.

Pupil, who joined Colliers 14 years ago and rose steadily through leadership to the company's top U.S. brokerage position, could not be reached for comment for details about his plans or the reason for his departure.

He joined Colliers in 2004 as managing director in Montreal, Canada, before taking a position in 2007 as regional managing director for greater Los Angeles. Six years later, Pupil became president of the Colliers' Southwest region and added the role of president of the western region in 2014, based in the global company's office in Irvine, CA.

In December 2016, Colliers elevated Pupil to president of the U.S. brokerage, responsible for working with regional presidents, business segment leaders and top brokers and overseeing recruitment and expansion at the company, freshly spun off as a separate publicly traded firm by Toronto-based FirstService the year before in June 2015.

Colliers, which traces its roots back to 1898, is one of the world's leading commercial real estate services firms with operations in 69 countries and more than 12,000 employees, with growth fueled by more than 30 mergers and acquisitions in the Americas, Asia Pacific and Europe.

"His contributions have been many and he will be missed," Taylor said in the company announcement.
