SEATTLE—Anjee Solanki has been named to the newly created position of national director, retail services | USA at Colliers International, has learned exclusively. Solanki will lead the Retail Services Group at Colliers, which comprises more than 400 professionals across 83 markets in the disciplines of brokerage, capital markets and management services.

Solanki, who joined Seattle-based Colliers four years ago, previously served as vice chair of the RSG alongside Solomon Ets-Hokin, and focused on retail real estate management services. She brings more than 20 years’ of experience—along with a client list that includes Heitman, Grosvenor Capital Management, PNC, Clarion Partners, American Realty Advisors and TIAA-CREF—to her new role.

“Since joining Colliers in 2010, Anjee has established a track record of taking a holistic approach to real estate by bringing together resources from across service lines and geographies to help solve business problems for both institutional clients and retailers,” says Craig Robinson, president | USA of Colliers. He adds that Solanki’s “access to the real estate, as well as her strategic, forward-thinking solutions, made her the clear choice for the national director role.”

For her part, Solanki says RSG team members recognize that “the end-user is the customer shopping in stores. We use that understanding to help tenants and institutional clients make sound real estate decisions based on those needs. It’s not about simply finding a space or tenant to fill a store; it’s about taking a 360-degree look at the consumer, the brand and its products and crafting a solution through real estate.”
