Brian Collins is leaving Fisher Brothers for Silverstein Properties, where he will serve as its executive vice president and director of development.

Collins has worked as head of acquisitions and development at Fisher Brothers since 2011 and previously worked as the founder and owner of Colgate Development. His other prior roles have included president of Intrawest Resort Holdings and COO of Millennium Partners, where he worked on multiple Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons hotel projects.

At Fisher Brothers, he was involved in the Manhattan condominium projects at 111 Murray Street and 125 Greenwich Street.

At Silverstein, he will focus on leading the company’s new developments in Manhattan and the outer boroughs.

Silverstein’s recently completed projects include 3 World Trade Center and One West End at Riverside Center. The firm closed on its $1.2 billion purchase of Disney’s Upper West Side ABC campuses in July and launched a lending venture called Silverstein Capital Partners in October.

“Brian has a long and successful history in the real estate industry,” Silverstein Properties chair Larry Silverstein said in a statement, “and we look forward to working with him in the new year.”
