Alex Rey, a banking and financing real estate expert and former FDIC trustee, has joined Colliers International’s South Florida investment sales team, the company said in a release.

Colliers International, a subsidiary of publicly-traded FirstService Corporation, is the world’s third-largest commercial real estate services company.

“Alex’s 20-plus years handling a wide variety of real estate transactions from acquisition and disposition through development, financing and asset management, make him a strong addition to our team,” Stephen Nostrand, Colliers International South Florida’s chief executive, said in the release.

“Alex’s experience in multifamily development will elevate the success that we have been accelerating for our clients,” Nostrand said.

Rey leaves a post heading strategic accounts and partnerships for Credomatic of Florida Inc., a banking and credit card merchant services company and subsidiary of Grupo Aval, a Colombian $48 billion publicly-traded banking group controlled by billionaire Luis Carlos Sarmiento Angulo. He was the company’s top producer in 2011 and 2012, according to Colliers.

A licensed real estate broker, Rey worked closely with the Office of Community Development and Miami-Dade County on a range of affordable housing and economic development projects from 1992 to 2006. He also advised institutions and businesses on acquisitions and workout agreements in the Caribbean and South Florida, according to the release. –Emily Schmall
