About Our Team

Colin’s 25+ year career has spanned four continents across many industries and almost every type of equity and debt financing.

Colin has completed over $5bn of financing transactions, both in real estate and for corporate clients, and has managed up to $1bn+ in client portfolios on the buyside.

He has also served as a Board Member, Board Advisor, and CFO/COO for multiple organizations, including as CFO/COO and in marketing/IR for two investment funds.

Colin spent eight years as an investment banker at Credit Suisse First Boston and GMAC (now Berkadia, a division of Leucadia and Berkshire Hathaway), focused on raising capital for specialty financials, real estate, consumer and industrial companies and assets.

Most clients were at the beginning or the end of their lifecycle with significant growing pains/structuring needs, or restructuring needs.

Colin then spent 17 years across four investment funds. He served as Analyst and Portfolio Manager focused on special situations in specialty financials, real estate, consumer and industrials, including his own hedge fund in 2011. Colin directed operations and IR/marketing at two of those funds as well.

Colin started Leelanau in 2023 to return to his advisory roots. In this capacity, Colin is advising companies at every stage of the cycle, including some young startups as well as companies in trouble. Leelanau focuses on capital raising, investment advisory, and liability management.

Colin holds a B.S. with Honors from Georgetown University and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
