Having identified the Sub-Saharan Africa region as a priority for long-term growth, Stan Frank will focus on extending JLL’s global brand and IFM service offering throughout the area and will partner with Mark Bradford, chairman of JLL’s regional Sub-Saharan Africa operation, to serve the firm’s current and prospective client base, as well as integrating with JLL’s EMEA IFM team.

Magnus Akerberg, managing director, EMEA IFM, JLL said:
“Many of JLL’s international clients and also local clients are asking us for stronger IFM support in Africa. The Sub-Saharan Africa market is growing and is a very attractive market for JLL to support current and new clients in their IFM needs. We believe that JLL’s combined real estate service offering will be very interesting to our clients.
“With the opening of this office we now have a presence in every region around the globe.”
Frank is one of the original pioneers of IFM in South Africa and has established many of the foremost property and facilities management companies in Middle East, Africa & South Africa.
His role will see him assist clients in a suite of IFM services including but not limited to: Global Trends and knowledge sharing, Integrated Facility Services including Critical Environment Management, Engineering Services, Energy & Sustainability Services, and Sourcing & Supply Chain Support.
“We are a truly a global Facilities Management company operating at a strategic level, which enables us to stay at the forefront of industry trends and international best practice. Our objective for Sub-Saharan Africa is to support our multi-national client base, forge key relationships with local business and establish an industry benchmark. Our approach and positioning is quite unique to the local market, where we effectively turn the local model onto its head.”
