4 0 U ND ER 4 0 2 01 3 13A Joshua Smith Age: 37 Co-Founder ��� Gaming Group Colliers International W hat is it that has led Joshua Smith to achieve as much as he has at so young an age? ���Oh, drive and determination, my man,��� he answers quickly. ���I did not in any way grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. I came from very humble beginnings, and had to fight for just about everything that I wanted to achieve. ���I was the first person to go to college in my entire family, and worked my way through there. Long story short I was still putting classes on my credit card when I first started going to school. I didn���t realize that you could get student loans. That���s the gist of it.��� Smith���s professional impact defines a dynamic businessperson. He was able to develop a platform of marketbased advisory and valuation for casino investments for a former employer, CBRE. This platform provided a new channel of revenue for the firm, using real-time analytics as a background for appraisal and valuation practices. He has also used this experience to work on more than 100 casino assignments across North America, including the valuation of the majority of Las Vegas Strip properties, totaling more than $15 billion in real property valuations in a three-year period. His focus now is on effectively utilizing the Colliers International Gaming Group, a ���super-team��� of nationally renowned gaming, hospitality and investment experts. The group was formed to meet an overwhelming demand for a next-generation, full-service gaming real estate advisory group with demonstrated expertise in gaming asset valuation, strategic acquisition/disposition and tax appeal. The team has already mapped out the Las Vegas landscape and expects to see an additional $1.5 billion+ invested in the Las Vegas gaming real estate market during the next two years. ���H.R. 40 UNDER 40 2013 Congratulations Dr. ZarnDt!
