SAN FRANCISCO—JLL has hired John Fa to lead its project and development-services group throughout the Pacific Northwest. Fa, an expert with more than 20 years’ experience handling all aspects of project management and development management for commercial real estate, will be based in San Francisco and oversee project and development management teams handling occupancy planning, relocation, build-to-suit and other real estate projects for clients in the Bay Area, including Silicon Valley, Oakland and the East Bay, as well as Portland, Sacramento and Seattle.
Before joining JLL, Fa was responsible for running real estate advisory services for Colliers International‘s San Francisco office. In addition to overseeing teams with a brokerage environment, he has hands-on experience working within construction, commercial development and corporate real estate/facilities. Colliers had no comment for GlobeSt.com on the move.
According to Elizabeth Hearle, Northwest market director for JLL, “John has experience leading strong teams with the ability to provide clients with a full range of expertise to help with projects like occupancy planning, relocations and build-to-suits across a range of commercial real estate as well as in healthcare, public facilities, mission-critical data and hotels.”
Higher-level executive moves are taking place all over the San Francisco market. As GlobeSt.com reported last week, international design firm Steinberg has promoted partner David Hart to president. Hart is assuming the leadership from current president Rob Steinberg, whose father Goodwin Steinberg, founded the company in 1953. To accompany the management transition, Steinberg, formerly Steinberg Architects, will introduce a new logo, brand identity and creative campaign.
