Colliers International has tapped two veteran brokers to co-head the company’s new U.S. capital markets platform.

David Amsterdam, a president at the company who overseas eastern region activities, and David Kotansky, a managing director in the Portland, Oregon office, will oversee divisions dedicated to investment sales, brokering debt and equity deals and structured finance, the company announced. Both will also continue with their previous responsibilities.

The newly-established “capital markets platform will add great value to our growing business,” said Gil Borok, the COO for Collier’s American business.

The three business lines that will be consolidated in the new platform are familiar ones for Colliers. Last week, the company helped Aion Partners sell its office building at 11 East 44th Street to menswear company Brooks Brothers for $106 million.

Amsterdam, who previously worked at SL Green Realty and Cushman & Wakefield, joined Colliers last March. Before that, he had a brief stint in politics as campaign manager for his former Cushman colleague Paul Massey. The candidate dropped out of the NYC mayoral race amid disappointing polls and a lack of funding well before election day.

Kotansky has worked at Colliers since 2011, according to his LinkedIn profile.

In 2017, Colliers hired JLL’s investment-sales team Richard Baxter, Scott Latham, Yoron Cohen. [CO] — Kevin Sun
