FORT WORTH-As part of the post-merger repackaging of the Staubach Co., Jones Lang LaSalle’s office on the Fort Worth side of the metroplex has added a city native with 23 years in the industry to its ranks to establish an agency leasing line. The group is being launched with two building assignments in hand, including the 954,895-square-foot Carter Burgess Tower which has been in the new senior vice president’s hands since 1985.

“Once the merger was completed, we knew there would be an additional service line that we’d be adding once we found the appropriate person,” says Todd Burnette, JLL’s managing director in Fort Worth. The office’s new senior vice president and head of the new line is W. Whitney Kelly, who officially starts Dec. 1.

Burnette says more news about the new line will come out in 30 days. Burnette, also a city native, launched the Fort Worth shop in May 2002, filling it with local brokers and Dallas transplants, getting a firm positioning in the marketplace before other Dallas-based brokerage houses started to plant second metroplex offices in a city where business ties run deep.
