ATLANTA-In an effort to grow its brokerage operations, Grubb & Ellis Co. has hired William Lampley for the newly created position of president, Eastern region, transaction services. Lampley is based in Atlanta and reports to Bob Osbrink, president of transaction services. He is responsible for Grubb & Ellis’ transaction services East of the Mississippi River, excluding the firm’s New York City offices. He is also responsible for leading transaction services’ diversity initiative.

The new hire is part of a five-year strategic plan initiated by CEO Mark Rose to grow the company. Under the plan, Rose hopes to double the revenue of the company by hiring new personnel and other measures. As of June 30, the company had increased its number of employees by 10%, according to company officials.

The managing directors of the company’s 19 offices throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast and Midwest regions will now report to Lampley. Grubb & Ellis New York president David Arena will continue to report to Osbrink. The managing directors of the company’s 27 offices west of the Mississippi will also continue to report to Osbrink until a president of the Western region is hired.

Lamprey tells GlobeSt.com that he plans to meet with the managing directors to determine the issues and challenges they face. He also plans to contact existing clients to increase their business and contact potential new clients. “I see this as an excellent opportunity to join a company that is reinventing and recreating itself,” he says.

Prior to joining, Lampley was with Kellogg Partners, a locally-based real estate consulting firm he formed in April 2005 after spending 11 years with Jones Lang LaSalle’s corporate solutions team. “By adding a regional structure, we will be able to provide our managing directors better support and additional resources as they focus on growing and developing their local operations,” Osbrink says, in a prepared statement.

During his tenure with Jones Lang LaSalle, Lamprey managed a national alliance team and completed transactions covering large office and industrial portfolios. In addition, he evaluated and negotiated headquarters and complex projects for clients such as Aetna, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, EDS, Ernest & Young, L’Oreal USA and Xerox.
