Richard Sharpe

Head of Technology Services

Colliers International


I’m a globally experienced technology leader. I specialise in transforming and leading teams to help businesses get the most from their technology investment.

As IT Operations Director at Cushman & Wakefield, I led the global transformation of IT Service Delivery. On completion, my team supported 16,000 staff across all 160 global offices and achieved a customer satisfaction rating of over 95%.

Today, I am the EMEA Head of Technology Services at Colliers International, where I am focused on improving the delivery of real estate services to our clients through the innovative and pragmatic application of technology.

I believe that my role is to create an environment in which my teams can succeed. To do this, I draw on over 20 years’ experience in all levels of technology delivery – from Help Desk to CIO – and through the practical application of frameworks within which my teams can both deliver demonstrable business value and develop themselves.
