DENVER-Chicago-based Equis Corp. has hired Peter B. Ridder as associate vice president for its local office. Ridder has 14 years of experience in business development, marketing, and sales at various technology companies, including more than nine years with Xerox.

Previously, Ridder was also a senior account executive in San Francisco with Akamai Technologies, Inc., an Internet content delivery firm. He led Akamai’s national sales force in new customer acquisitions, and helped to grow their revenue by $4 million.

“Peter’s extensive experience in not only developing business, but managing account relationships and developing long term solutions for major companies fits well with Equis’ approach,” says John Niemi, executive vice president and head of Equis’ brokerage operations in the Western US region. “By incorporating Peter’s abilities with Equis’ platform of maximizing real estate value we can provide our clients a higher level of service.”

Paul Keilt, Equis senior vice president adds that his knowledge of business development and management in the technology industry will be helpful to elevate the Equis presence in the Rocky Mountain region.
