Colliers adds owners, promotes new managing partner

Colliers International Idaho is making changes – with new owners and a new leader.

The commercial real estate firm will transfer a portion of ownership equity to 13 of its sales professionals. The new broker-owners will join current managing owner George Iliff. He has served in the role since 2001.

Iliff will transition to a new role as broker and doing work in community outreach. He will retain a “significant share” of ownership in the business.

“It is the quality of the people in our organization that elevates our ability to offer superior services to our clients,” Iliff said in a prepared statement. “Bringing brokers on as co-owners further reinforces their importance and ensures that they have an ongoing vested interest in the success of the business.”

He hands over the managing partner role to Jim Shipman, who joined the firm in late 2017.

“With him at the helm we are poised to continue our role as leader in the Idaho commercial real estate market,” Iliff said.

Colliers International Idaho is a locally-owned affiliate of the large national commercial brokerage firm. It traces its roots to 1972 and the founding of White-Leasure. The firm went through a number of ownership and name changes before joining Colliers in 1997. The firm now has offices in Boise, Nampa, Twin Falls and Pocatello.
