Real estate veteran Martin Pupil is leaving his role as President of U.S. brokerage at Colliers International, a position he’s held since December 2016. Pupil (pictured) is moving on to an unnamed regional firm in what is described in an internal email as a role focusing on the principal side of the industry. Dylan Taylor, President and COO for Colliers International, will assume, on an interim basis, the duties of President of U.S. brokerage.
Pupil joined Colliers 14 years ago in its Montreal office, and has served in a number of roles with increasing responsibility. The internal memo noted Pupil’s contributions were many and he will be missed. Company leadership indicated “it is business as usual,” at a firm that has created “great momentum” and is “wholly supported.”
Pupil’s most recent role involved overseeing Colliers’ markets and partners with regional presidents, service line leaders, market leaders and sales professionals focused on expanding revenue through new business development and recruiting.
Previously, Pupil served as President for Colliers’ Western Region, including operations across California and Arizona with more than 700 sales professionals and staff. In this role, Pupil was responsible for integrating the Seeley Co. into Colliers’ national platform in 2005. He streamlined operations by reducing the firm’s break-even point by 46%, and expanding its service delivery by increasing the number of professionals by 35%.
Prior to entering the CRE industry, Pupil began his career as a lawyer in Montreal at De Gradpré Chait, specializing in real estate and construction law.
