Paul Massey’s former mayoral campaign manager David Amsterdam is joining Colliers International as president responsible for leasing, investments and the Eastern U.S., the company announced Thursday.

Amsterdam will head Colliers’ offices in New York, Boston and Washington, D.C.

Massey tapped Amsterdam to manage his long-shot bid for mayor in June 2016, but dropped out a year later amid disappointing polls and a lack of funding.

Prior to his brief stint in politics, Amsterdam spent five years at SL Green Realty, where he was a vice president in charge of leasing.

Yesterday, The Real Deal reported that Brookfield Property Partners leasing executive James Malone is joining Colliers.  — Konrad Putzier
