MEET THE TEAM

Kevin Terrien

Principal

Kevin Terrien has over 20 years of experience in commercial real estate project management, development management, design and engineering, and facility relocation management for both owners and tenants. He is the principal and founder of Ruut Consulting.

 

Kevin has led major projects, both locally and internationally, including an 18-month assignment in South Africa. He’s worked with top-tier clients including Microsoft, Lehman Brothers, Bayer Crop Science, Hogan Lovells, Deloitte, the United States Olympic Committee, and the Denver Chamber of Commerce. Kevin has also successfully represented real estate owners including pension funds, REITs, insurance companies and institutional investment firms on capital and tenant improvements of their commercial real estate investment properties.

 

During his tenure at Cushman & Wakefield, Kevin served as senior vice president and led the Project and Development Services team for the Colorado region. Prior to that Kevin worked for CBRE, a worldwide leader in real estate services, as their Managing Director.

 

Kevin lives in the Denver metro area with his wife, Wendy, and their dogs, Shea and Boon. Kevin believes in balancing work with play and enjoys snowboarding as well as surfing—a hobby that baffles most people since he lives far (far, far) from the beach. But Kevin is not one to let a challenge prevent him from reaching his goals, and he logs time on the waves every season.
