Miami transportation engineering and design firm acquired by Colliers

Toronto-based professional services and investment management firm Colliers announced that its Colliers Engineering & Design unit acquired Bolton Perez & Associates.

The Miami-based transportation engineering and design firm will be rebranded as Colliers E&D.

“This acquisition is the first follow-on investment in our Colliers E&D platform as we continue to build a leading engineering and design practice across the U.S.,” said Elias Mulamoottil, Head, Strategic Investments | Global for Colliers, which operates in nearly 70 countries. “Our unique Colliers partnership model continues to be a key differentiator in attracting best-in-class firms that are passionate about pursuing growth and thriving in our enterprising operating environment.”

BPA was founded in 1997 and has more than 30 engineers who “provide specialty transportation and bridge design, as well as inspection services to state and municipal transportation authorities primarily in the state of Florida.”

“Joining a large, multi-discipline engineering and design firm was a natural next step for us, allowing us to better serve our clients and provide greater career opportunities for our people,” said Jake Perez, Founder & CEO of BPA. “We are excited to begin our next chapter as Colliers E&D with a company that has a strong global presence and shares our values and enterprising spirit.”

Added Colliers E&D CEO Kevin Haney, “We are excited to welcome Jake and his talented team into the Colliers family as we strengthen our capabilities and deepen our qualifications and relationships in the Florida market.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
