HOUSTON-After close to a decade of working with CB Richard Ellis Capital Markets, Thomas O. Fish, Michael J. Melody and Thomas J. Melody joined Jones Lang LaSalle as executive managing directors for the company’s Americas Real Estate Investment Banking business. The threesome, which began operating from Jones Lang LaSalle’s Houston office on March 15, was hired to help boost JLL’s Americas Capital Markets business growth.

The team’s overall goal is to help formulate an integrated investment sales and real estate investment banking business in the Americas. Such a business would offer debt and equity origination and placement, equity fund raising, resolution strategies, loan and note sales and investment advisory services.

Thomas Melody tells GlobeSt.com the move from CBRE had more to do with the opportunity to grow something at Jones Lang LaSalle. The relationship with CBRE was very good, and there were no issues with the team’s departure, Melody adds.
