NORTHBROOK, IL-Shawn P. Mobley has been hired by Grubb & Ellis Co. to oversee 50 brokers in the firm’s Chicago and Rosemont offices. He joins the company after eight years at Jones Lang LaSalle, where he was senior vice president in that firm’s corporate solutions group, managing a 10-person tenant representation team.
