JLL has announced the final steps in its two-year transformation programme, announcing a coordinated series of leadership appointments.
Current Americas CEO, Greg O’Brien, will move into a new role as Global CEO Markets, with the Global Executive Board overview of all regional and local Markets operations.
John Gates will lead the Americas Region as CEO Americas Markets, Anthony Couse will continue to lead the Asia Pacific region, while Andy Poppink will become CEO EMEA Markets.
Poppink, who is relocating to Europe from his present role leading the US West Region, will succeed Guy Grainger who was announced earlier this week as JLL’s Global Head of Sustainability Services & ESG. Gates, Couse and Poppink will report to O’Brien, with all these changes effective January 1, 2021.
Commenting on the appointments, JLL CEO, Christian Ulbrich said: “These appointments will complete the transformation program which we began implementing in January 2019.
“Leveraging substantial multiyear investments in our platform and technology, we are further enhancing the seamless global integration of our services and expertise. That’s something our clients identify as a key benefit in working with JLL, particularly during the ongoing pandemic where our ability to quickly adapt and deploy products and services is vital.”
Earlier phases of the transformation programme successfully delivered global alignment of JLL’s Corporate Solutions, Capital Markets and Valuation Advisory business lines, along with the company’s corporate functions, and saw the launch of JLL Technologies.
The new Markets group will bring similar global alignment to all other JLL services.
FMJ has teamed up with Zip Water, creator of award-winning sustainable drinking water systems, to discuss the ways in which FMs can safeguard the provision of essential amenities within the workplace as we emerge into a new era of touch-free, socially distanced offices.
During the event, which will feature a panel of leading FMs and an FM services provider, we will discuss how FM professionals, office managers and HR managers can balance the need to manage shared spaces, such as staff kitchens, while maintaining a safe environment and meeting energy and waste reduction targets. This will include a look at some of the latest touch-free technologies; including apps to manage workflow and hands-free automation (e.g. automatic doors, taps etc).
Join us on Wednesday 25th November at 11:00am for an event which will address the ways FMs can meet their commitment to ensure the wellbeing of people as an integral part of their sustainability remit.
