Phoenix, AZ  – Colliers Engineering & Design, a national multi-discipline engineering and architecture, design and consulting firm, is pleased to announce the recent hiring of David Garcia as Senior Client Manager in the firm’s Phoenix, Arizona office (formerly HILGARTWILSON).

Mr. Garcia brings 30+ years of experience in land acquisition and development, along with an extensive real estate background. His expertise in feasibility analysis, land planning, Home Owners Association (HOA) formation, property entitlements, and land development contributed to a successful career as an industry leader. Mr. Garcia spent the past 24 years at Shea Homes, Arizona Division and recently retired as the Vice President of Land Acquisition and Development. He was instrumental in the acquisition and development of over 17,000 lots, which represented over $800 million in sales. Prior to joining Shea Homes, Mr. Garcia was the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ryland Homes, and the Marketing Manager for Arizona Public Service Company and Southwest Gas Corporation.

“I am so excited to have Dave on board with us,” said Darrell Wilson, PE, Senior Principal for Colliers Engineering & Design. “His accomplishments in homebuilding and land development are widely known. I’ve had the pleasure of working directly with, and for Dave, on many projects over the years and always respected his industry acumen. What is most significant when working with Dave is his character. One always knows you are going in the same direction, towards the same goals. Relationships are everything and no one builds and maintains them better than him. This will be fun for us, for Dave, and for our friends and clients.”

“We are thrilled to have Dave join our team,” shared Nguyen Lam, PE, Senior Principal/Director of Engineering for Land Development & Infrastructure. “He’s been a fixture in the homebuilding industry and part of the teams who have developed signature communities such as Seville and Vistancia. We are excited to leverage Dave’s experience and expertise to help lead our clients in achieving entitlement solutions on our most challenging and complex projects. His experience with property entitlements and land development substantially enhances our capabilities to serve complementary market sectors and help expand our geographical footprint across the southwest region and beyond.”

In May of 2024, HILGARTWILSON rebranded as Colliers Engineering & Design. Previously, Mr. Wilson was Managing Principal and Mr. Lam was the Principal/Director of Civil Engineering. HILGARTWILSON’s leadership remains committed to their clients and community. They will continue to lead the business efforts in Arizona as Colliers Engineering & Design to better serve our clients with more resources and continued growth opportunities within the A/E industry.
